New York Subway Tile-Setter "Personalized" Mosaic$225.00
New York City subway stations are decorated with cheerful, fanciful ceramic plaques and tile mosaics that some have likened to the work of the Italian Renaissance. Of these, many take the form of signs, identifying the station's location, 100 feet below the streets of the city. Much of this ceramic work was in place when the subway system originally opened on October 27, 1904, so repair and restoration is an ongoing process, led by urban archaeologists and tile setters, Susan Brown and Denny Morrison.
Ms. Brown and Mr. Morrison create architecturally striking letters and numbers based on their subway work, with the actual tiles used in the subways. Each mosaic is made by hand to your individually-selected letter or number, using as many as 300 pieces in random colors. Each work of art includes a description of the artists' work and mounting hardware on the reverse. Measures 8-inches by 10-inches.
Availability: Each mosaic is handcrafted to order and shipping directly from the artists' studio in approximately 3 weeks.
