Katrina Creates Tile Mosaic For Popop’s New Kitchen
Ceramicist Katrina Cartwright is utilizing her skills to create a tile mosaic on one of the walls in the newly refurbished kitchen at Popopstudios.
Katrina, who works out of her studio at Popop, has created an abstract design comprising approximately 460 clay ceramic tiles and a variety of warm gold and cool blue tones.
The refurbishing of the kitchen is a project the Popop art community took on earlier this year. For the last three years Popop has facilitated both international and local residency programs, which have brought tremendous credibility and visibility to the Bahamian art movement. A functioning kitchen is a basic necessity and an integral part of making live-in residencies work. Popop held a fundraiser in April – Sketch24 – and raised a few thousand dollars with which to redo the well-worn kitchen built sometime in the 60s.
Katrina’s tile mosaic is the final artistic touch.
