Celadon Remnants

180x408 inches (h x w x d)
2008
Mosaic made out of broken Korean ceramic and glass

"Project for the LIRR Broadway Station, Queens, NY
Commissioned by MTA Arts for Transit
Celadon donated by the City of Icheon, South Korea and participating kilns in the region
Fabricated by Miotto Mosaics
Art Studios, Inc.

Fragments of traditional Korean ceramics are arranged into mosaic murals of vase silhouettes on the fa├žade of the Broadway Long Island Railroad station in Flushing, Queens. Located in the heart of a vibrant Korean-American community, the abstract, green-blue silhouettes enhance the beauty of the Celadon itself, while the overall piece speaks to the rich, yet fractured, cultural history of the Korean diaspora. The pottery remnants were imported from Icheon, Korea as part of a cultural exchange."
