Katia’s kitchen backsplash 2017-18

This backsplash was designed to create a dense forest in her kitchen. Specific forms were chosen from artwork in my studio, to be copied into the backsplash imagery. The spiral flowers were requested to begin and end the backsplash mural, as it circled the kitchen.  The tiles flowing behind the sink, were kept thinner and the imagery was carved through slip, instead of being sculpted more dimensionally. The backsplash was designed as a functional artwork, which would keep the house green through out a New England winter.
