hand-fired ceramic mosaic sculpture on steel and cement, 9x24x29 ft., LED lights and glass suckers.
This was a piece made specifically for Burning Man 2016, and the winner of a Honoraria Grant Award through the Burning Man Foundation. We strive to create pieces that bring visions to life, and have been very successful in doing so with this massive, interactive piece.
This piece was created with the designer and artist (Peter Hazel) and a team of volunteers and ceramic arts specialists over a period of six months of work and collaboration.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
