Ceramic Wall Sculpture

Created by Kristi Sloniger
These oversize stoneware tiles are hand built and decorated while still wet using the mocha diffusion technique. The artist applies other colored clay in a liquid state that absorbs directly into the tile. They are then dried and fired in her gas reduction kiln. The tiles are mounted on a wood frame with industrial strength epoxy for easy hanging. The black frame contrasts with the play of light of the brightly colored tiles.
