  • Features & Design Context. On the golf-course side of the MSE wall, custom serpentine curvilinear pattern and concrete form liners offer a visual reference to Cherokee history and culture with designs evoking traditional pottery.
  • Techniques & Requirements.
    • Initially, each clay pattern was hand-sculpted by Creative Form Liners’ team of skilled craftsmen.
    • From the patterns, the form liners were fabricated using high-quality elastomeric/urethane rubber capable of reproducing the fine detail present in the final built cast-in-place walls.
  • Stakeholders. Oklahoma Art in Public Places, Oklahoma Department of Transportation, The Cherokee Nation, City of Tulsa
