Gunnison Legacy Wall Mural • 2017 • Glazed Porcelain Tile Project
Center Mural Tiles
Michael Moonbird and Victoria Lyons
Our latest project the "Gunnison Legacy Wall Mural" is a mural design that is organic, fun, whimsical, and connects the rural Gunnison Valley Community in Utah. The center section of the mural is composed of 80 12"x12" hand-glazed porcelain tiles. The size is 4' x 20' as a part of a larger curved wall that is 6' tall by 60' long. On each side of the mural there are a total of 32 hand-glazed tiles in sepia tones representing historical photos that are important to this small town setting. This project has been a wonderful experience in meeting with and getting to know this rural community.
