15-Foot Mosaics Fired in a Paragon TnF-27-3


Artist Mario Miguel Echevarria of Longmont, Colorado used a Paragon TnF-27-3 to fire mosaic relief tiles for the Greeley History Museum in Greeley, Colorado. The 15” x 16” tiles are grouped into 4’ x 15’ mosaics depicting Greeley historic figures. In all, the project required 108 tiles. Mario fired them to cone 6 in his Paragon kiln.

“People love architectural ceramics, but there isn’t much of it around,” said Mario. “Architectural ceramics exudes the tangible warmth and love of clay. By comparison, steel is more cerebral.”

Mario used clay from Mile Hi Ceramics in Denver, Colorado. “Mile Hi is a well spring of information,” Mario said. “And the kiln has been wonderful. It’s a real workhorse.”

Mario specializes in large-scale architectural art and works with clay, steel, aluminum, concrete, and canvas. Walk into any Wild Oats Market health food store, and you will see his painted 6’ x 42’ murals. They are reproduced in vinyl for all 36 stores.

Mario graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design and studied in the European Honors Program in Rome and the Peggy Guggenheim Fellowship in Venice, Italy. His works are exhibited in private collections nationwide.

Mario, thank you for using a Paragon kiln. And congratulations on bringing greater awareness to architectural ceramics.
