"Tajtrlici" Marek Jacisin 2016

Over the summer I worked on the Arlington Public Art project, painting of eletrical transformer box.
This project in East Arlington was a lot of fun and I got to know whole neighborhood, receiving positive feedback and hundreds of "Thank you!"

The location of the box is at the corner of Bates and Broadway in East Arlington

 

This set of 3 tiles is called Life's Twist and Turns. The set was exhibited at Fuller Craft Museum and Kecskemet Cultural and Conference Centre, Kecskemét, Hungary

I've designed the tiles in the Adobe Photoshop, printed it, transferred the design with the tracing paper to the top layer of the 2 stoneware slabs and cut out the pattern with the X-Acto knife. I've made a plaster mold and successfully cast the first tile.
