The largest glass glaze ceramic murals in the world, these three pieces were produced in Shigaraki, Japan, one of the historic ceramic villages in Japan. Having selected exotic flowers for a large atrium planting, the architect wanted to emphasize that with the murals. Many of the glazes for the murals were developed just for this project, and some of the lines and colors are the result of "the magic of the fire", where a controlled reaction took place to determine the final result. Each of the tile panels here is 8'9" tall and nearly 2' wide.
