Studiocharlie — Made a Mano: SARDINE Tile — Rovato, Italy
Sardines, anchovies and mackerel swim fast, gather in schools, separate, create evenly distributed formations and then serry their ranks, a few remain outside the group then rush back to become lost amongst the others. Glazed terracotta tiles with handmade stencil, four subjects.
