Technique and Practice

During four weeks of fabrication, the artists will use motifs and techniques representative of their respective cultures.

They will use a variety of clays from Columbus Clay with a variety of colored clay slips, with a possibility of some underglaze decoration appropriate for a single high firing.

Other materials such as pebbles and stone fragments from each country can be integrated.

The lower sections of each column (subject to the heaviest wear) will be surfaced with complementary unglazed commercial tiles.

Finally, the mosaics will be applied to the colonnade surfaces by a contracted professional tilesetter who will use specified colored grouts.
