Ceramics for Walls and Floors
A decorative aspect that designers use to tie their concept together is to give walls and floors a colourful touch. For functional reasons, tiles are often the best choice. One must be careful in combining and complementing bold patterns with other optical surfaces. This can play a crucial part in a concept, and can create an interesting tension where the ceramic meets another material. What in former times has been part of artistic pottery tradition, is now almost entirely mass produced. There is a huge industry developing new surfaces and setting new trends every year. What I find interesting is that there is a recognizable niche of handmade quality products some of which I will introduce to you. The brush or the stamp apply the crystals of the glaze with an imperfect yet human quality, something we can all relate to and feel at home with.
