Amazing Staircases Around the World
The 16th Avenue Tiles Steps San Francisco
Created by Irish ceramist Aileen Barr and mosaic artist Colette Crutcher, The 16th Avenue Tiled Steps, tucked away in the quiet neighbourhood of Golden Gate Heights on 16th and Moraga, is a stunning work of art and one of San Franciscos hidden gems. The 163 steps contain 2,000 handmade tiles and 75,000 fragments of tile, mirror and stained glass, which make up scenes of the land, sea and sky. The project involved community workshops and donated tiles were incorporated into the design with over 200 local residents helping to create the panels.
