"Bunch of Grapes Tile Mural" by Sara Starr

tile mural

This tile mural of a grape bunch is created using cuerda seca, a technique from 15th century Spain, and high-fired glazes. Sara focuses on achieving beautiful, vibrant colors in a Cone 10 kiln (about 2300 degrees Fahrenheit).

Sara's annual tile exhibit takes place in November at the Fire Arts Center Gallery on South G Street in Arcata, California. She's been busy rolling, cutting, slipping, bisqueing, painting, and glazing tiles for the show. The show opens on Friday, November 12, during Arts! Arcata from 6-9P.
