Hearne,Stephen-Night Sky
Night Sky / Mixed Media / 8" by 8" / Request Price

Description: "Night Sky" Framed tile mural by ceramic artist Stephen Hearne. All images c stephenhearne.com My work consists of brightly glazed ceramic tiles. I use terracotta clay to add richness to the colors and wax-lines to provide a crisp separation between colors. The glazes are bulbed on in order to produce a thick, even, glossy surface. My tiles are displayed in a number of ways. I arrange tile murals inside of vintage wooden Coca-Cola crates and add a found object. These pieces engage the observer to find the relationship between the object and the mural. I also create traditional tile murals, framed single tiles, and pavers. Following the belief that people like something familiar presented in a new way, I design tiles that are simple yet striking enough to evoke feeling

Statement
My work consists of brightly glazed ceramic tiles. I use terracotta clay to add richness to the colors and wax-lines to provide a crisp separation between colors. The glazes are bulbed on in order to produce a thick, even, glossy surface. My tiles are displayed in a number of ways. I arrange tile murals inside of vintage wooden Coca-Cola crates and add a found object. These pieces engage the observer to find the relationship between the object and the mural. I also create traditional tile murals, framed single tiles, pavers, and tile top tables. Following the belief that people like something familiar presented in a new way, I design tiles that are simple yet striking enough to evoke feeling.
