It took 4,800 bricks, 10,000 cuts and 13,000 total pieces to create the beautiful brick mural that anchors our new Shoal Creek Coffeebar! The mural titled ‘We Are Living On A Star’ was designed by local artist, Erin Curtis. Erin created this piece with glazed, locally-produced Elgin Butler brick, cut into three simple shapes and reassembled into a series of repeating geometric patterns. The design is inspired by American quilts and Islamic tiling with a color palette that mirrors the big blue skies of Texas and its sparkling swimming holes!
