Florida Condo Straight On

Florida Tile Mural at the Caribe

Tile Mural


This tile mural was a technical challenge. With the tiles needing to be 14.5″ x 14.5″ it was Josh’s largest tiles he has ever made and he had to make 30 of them. The making was not really this issue but the kiln firing proved to challenging. While we fired them very slowly many separated and cracked. so many had to be redone. In the end it all worked out. You can see this mural in Naples Florida.

The tile mural was part of a reconstruction of the entry to the building. One of the main points for this design was to help direct visitors to go left when they are initially arriving at the building and a place to sit while waiting for friends to come outside. Here is what the architect Mike Cox wrote about

-Created an animation of three waves and the sun with hand made ceramic tile by Clay Squared representing why we are here.
