Clay • Sculpture • Innovation

September 2014


I created a commissioned mural for the arts district at Grand Avenue in Phoenix, Arizona. It sits at the roadway at 925 Grand Avenue. The design was airbrushed on over 120 commerical tiles, fired to 1850 degrees. The 3" x 6" tiles were cemented and grouted onto a concrete planter, and is one of several in this area. The design represents the Phoenix bird rising, holding the mitsudomoe, which is a Japanese symbol of  the harmony between man, earth and sky.
