Matthews in Motion
Glazed ceramic tiles
Two sets of sculptural ceramic tiles enliven the brick walls of the passenger comfort station. The artwork's transportation-related images reflect themes drawn by the artist from the history of the Town of Matthews. Twenty-four 12" x 14" hand-made ceramic tiles form the arch of the comfort station. A series of eight 7 5/8" square, hand-built matte-glazed tiles are set into the brick under the arch in the entry alcove.
