​Six 4' diameter structural columns have been sculpturally modified using a mosaic surface of broken tile, pottery and hand-made clay tiles. Original pieces created by Phoenix artists and secondary school students have been glazed a glossy black and grouted with matte charcoal black. The shiny surface of the columns reflects the busy and colorful surrounding environment, and make a subtle reference to the contemporary black on black Southwestern Native American pottery of the Santa Clara and San Ildefonso pueblos. Their contemporary look and Native American inspiration blend, resulting in dramatic southwestern imagery.
