The article discusses the work of potter and fabric artist Ann Adams. According to the article, Adams began her career as a studio potter, later worked in textile design and quiltmaking, and was commissioned in early 1997 by the city of San Antonio, Texas to design and install ceramic tiles as elements of the architectural structure of Convention Plaza Street Car Station. The tiles will adorn the four sides of the columns supporting canopies over transit stops. For the project, Adams employed the basic motif of a circle within a square.
