Public art for Ed Roberts Campus

Art translated to hand-glazed ceramic tile at Magnolia Editions

Printer Tallulah Terryll and the team at Magnolia have been working around the clock to complete a public art commission for the Ed Roberts Campus in Berkeley, a new office complex and community center serving people with disabilities.

The project consists of handmade tiles, glazed and fired using a technique developed at Magnolia Editions, bearing artwork created by a variety of artists from all over the world.

Terryll completed this ambitious and labor-intensive project with the help of Magnolia employees Kevin Frances and Ken Jensen, and ceramics expert Mikael Kirkman of Bicycle Coffee.

The tiles will be unveiled at the grand opening of the Ed Roberts Campus on April 9, 2011, at 1 pm; check their website for the full details.

See below for a sneak preview of some of the completed tiles (click any image to enlarge).
