Art I Collaborative Clay Tile Project





Art I students worked with slabs - flat pieces of clay - to re-create M.C. Escher's famous illustration entitled Sun and Moon (1948). Using slabs, Art I students created a sculptural relief through carving away the background. Relief sculpture is defined as a "drawing in clay." A relief sculpture is meant to be viewed from the front.

M.C. Escher (1898-1972) is one of the world's most famous graphic artists. He is famous for his impossible structures and tessellations. He played with mathematics, architecture, perspective and space. In his work we recognize his keen observation of the world around us and the expressions of his own fantasies. M.C. Escher shows us that reality is wondrous, comprehensible and fascinating.
