Mosaic of New Erlanger Chapel Unveiled


Erlanger Hospital, Chattanooga Tennessee, announces the opening of its new all-faith chapel created by artist Daud Akhriev with his son, artist Timur Akhriev. The architecture for the project is by Hefferlin Kronenberg Architects. The creative team won the project through a call for entries. The mural is made from Italian smalti, artisan glass and porcelain tiles which were carved in the sgraffito technique and painted using glazes and under glazes.
