Tile Commission Installed

We just finished installing our recently commissioned wall tile composition in the newly remodeled lobby of the Akron General Medical Center.  The 5-panel piece is made up of masonite and wood frames that have been textured with modeling paste and then painted with several layers of colors for the background. The ceramic tiles are then "floated" on the individual panels to create a three-dimensional composition. The individual ceramic tiles have airbrushed under-glazes for the surface design and it is then finished with a gloss glaze.
