Don Quixote & Sancho Panza Tile Mural
"Now look, your grace," said Sancho, "what you see over there aren't giants, but windmills, and what seems to be arms are just their sails, that go around in the wind and turn the millstone."
"Obviously," replied Don Quixote, "you don't know much about adventures.”
It was crafted in San Diego by Eric & Rose Franco, and to stay true to the European and old Californian Tradition of framing their tile works in wrought iron, they collaborate with Cirilo Medina, a Tijuana-based artisan and ironworker.
Eric and Rose Franco creat their works in the cuerda seca, or dry line, technique, which goes back centuries in Spain and other countries. Black wax is used to outline a design that’s been drawn on a 6-by-6-inch bisque tile or group of tiles, then water-based glaze is applied to specific areas with a syringe. The wax stops the glaze from spreading into other sections of the design. Eric compared the raised black lines to leaded glass or the wires in cloisonné.
