Mudflat Studios

Katherine Hackl - Mudflat Studios & Others

Mudflat is a community pottery school in Somerville, MA. The Mudflat Marque mural is a mosaic of iconic ceramic images submitted by Mudflat community members. Individual students and associates volunteered to provide images of ceramic works that they are inspired by, that they love, maybe they’ve made, pieces from history, or that tell a story. Katherine then translated these images into scaled tile silhouettes and installed them within a black mosaic background. The small rectangular tiles along the border are meant to create the look of a film strip to reflect the building’s history as a local theater.
