I’ve worked with a number of primary schools to design, make and install large ceramic murals.
They each have a close connection to the school in their design and are utterly unique to them.
Each mural has hundreds of tiles that fit together in a jigsaw to create a beautiful picture inspired by the school.
The murals are designed so that each child in the school can make at least one of the tiles during workshops held during the school day. This means the mural has an intimate connection to the space in which it will be installed.
The murals have a long life span so may well be there for the children once grown up to bring their own children to see the mural they helped to create.
