8 feet wide and 5 feet high, 400 pieces of tiles in different stoneware clay. Artist applied 10 different hand made glazes. The scene is view of a vineyard. The viewer is to see different things when they view the wine wall.
Architect approached me before remodel of wine cellar, he wanted the wall to look as if it was always there and just rediscovered. Custom commission.
Architect, David Suttle was very engaged with design and glaze choice etc. They all love it.
Mur d'argile de la vigne, meaning Wall of clay of the vine (or vineyard) Valerie Ratts, the client.
