I’ve always loved the texturing of old utility poles. They’re a ubiquitous sight in the city and no two look alike. Some are cracked and weathered from the sun and rain; some are charred; some have creosote and chemicals leeching out. I wanted to recreate each variation in a ceramic tile wall mosaic that could be displayed indoors.
