Homage to Shigaraki

"Homage to Shigaraki "by Massachusetts based artist Stephan Knapp is one of thelargest glass glaze ceramic murals in the world. This is one of three pieces that were produced in Shigaraki, Japan, one of the historic ceramic villages in Japan. The artist wanted the murals to emphasize the exotic flowers located in the atrium.<span style="font-style: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-caps: normal; font-weight: normal; font-size: 12px;">Many of the glazes for the murals were developed just for this project, and some of the lines and colors are the result of "the magic of the fire", where a controlled reaction took place to determine the final result. Each of the tile panels here is 8’9" tall and nearly 2′ wide
