ceramic relief tiles

Steve Mayo's ceramic reliefs at the Early Childhood Center # 3 is a colorful frieze depicting bio- morphic shapes which change from abstract shapes into animal forms. Walking down the corridor, the students gradually experience the transition from shape to shape. The child can follow the ceramic "filmstrip" in an almost animated story, where fish turn to crocodiles and turtles turn into other reptiles.
