Tile Relief
Research DUE:10/4
Project DUE: TBA
Written DUE: with project
PROJECT:
 Using your images and thumbnails for your inspiration, create an original tile relief that tells a story
 The designs must include foreground, middle ground, and background and should include objects that
are large, medium, and small.
 All designs must have objects that overlap
 Ceramic tiles will need at least 4-5 slab layers
 NO CLICHÉ ELEMENTS! – Hearts, stars, flowers, words, etc…
 Create a surface design that FILLS the majority of the slab
SKETCHING: Series of sketches – with descriptions
 Using your researched images, create 10 thumbnails of your own texture designs
RESERCH: Image/info research – documented sources
 Research 10 print or internet resources images focusing on relief sculptures/tile murals…look up Frank
Giorgini and other artists. Do not look in one place for your research.
 Search the internet: viable sources like museums, libraries, artists’ sites, galleries, ceramics and pottery
sites. Stay away from commercial sites.
 Copy down the artist and site of the images – Document your sources!
 Comment on each image. What physical characteristics do you like or dislike about them?
