Gorgeous handmade reproduction of one of the murals from Catalina's famous Bird Park. It is an unassembled mural comprised of 6 tiles measuring 6x6", perfect for a home renovation project. This mural was made by long time friends of the Catalina Museum, Eric & Rose Franco.
Eric and Rose Franco create their works in the cuerda seca, or dry line, technique, which goes back centuries in Spain and other countries. Black wax is used to outline a design that’s been drawn on a 6-by-6-inch bisque tile or group of tiles, then water-based glaze is applied to specific areas with a syringe. The wax stops the glaze from spreading into other sections of the design. Eric compared the raised black lines to leaded glass or the wires in cloisonné.
