John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art – Center for Asian Art
Take a look at our archived posts, illustrating the progress of this project from the production of the prototype models to the digital development of the primary masonry units, to Machado Silvetti’s inspection of the glaze and track. The installation of the three thousand iridescent terra cotta tiles made quite an impression on the local press. The jade green glazed tiles were produced one at a time at the Boston Valley Terra Cotta facilities in Orchard Park, New York, by RAM-press, hand press, and slip cast forming methods, and installed on an aluminum track and clip system. The Centre for Asian Art expansion is intended to create an impressive entrance and accommodate the museum’s growing collection of Asian art.
