Olivet Church Cosmic Mural

Olivet Church contacted Josh after seeing him profiled in Midwest Home Magazine. Olivet was looking to add a large piece of art work that represented the church. After coming to Clay Squared to Infinity they discussed making a piece that had elements of the church.

Josh went on site and photographed the building and learn the history of the building. Josh utilized the architectural elements through out the building with grape vines carved out of the eaves, stain glass window patterns, the amazing wooden organ pipes, the metalwork around the building.

The congregation was allowed to choose from over 60 pieces and select the 48 final pieces. Each of the tiles were paid for by congregational members to finance the project. Many of the tiles were given as gifts to the church.

The concept of the piece for Josh was to allow the viewers as they came into the meeting space to view the work not as a static image but with the concept that every day is different and when you view the large array of designs it will lead you to new ideas and reflections.
