INCREDIBLE: TILING ART – The Wiedmann Bible

Reutlingen / Stuttgart January 13, 2020 – 10 young people, 1,400 hours, 4,600 tiles. This year the schedule of the vocational students at the Kerschenstein School looked a little different. It became biblical with the tilers. Teacher Michael Silbernagl had seen the Wiedmann Bible on television for the first time and was fascinated by the work. The polycon style developed by Willy Wiedmann is particularly suitable for him as a master tiler. Because there are only straight lines and angles here. “I want the students to enjoy their work. That’s why I always come up with something special. Everyone was immediately enthusiastic about the Wiedmann Bible and the pictures, even if the group consisted of students from different religious backgrounds. Of course, they were allowed to choose the motifs themselves, ”said Michael Silbernagl. The choice fell on two pictures of Jonah.
