The Look for Generation Taihape


Generation Taihape will be achieved with in a sgraffito style.

A terracotta tile is painted with a coat of black or white clay slip. The workshop guests will then scratch their design into to slip revealing the terracotta. 

The tiles are then stored while they dry before undergoing two firings. Before the second firing I will apply understated colour highlights to most of the tiles. 

Generation Taihape tiles will be visually distinct from the original project yet with a similar size to give a sense of cohesion.
