The inspiration for this project comes from the treelines of evergreen forests. This is evident in the design through the angles and triangulated form, and the different interactions between them. Other inspiration comes from the natural and slim gorges in the Pacific Northwest. This manifests in the design through the carved lines.
A 4” x 4” piece of clay is trimmed and carved using clay tools.
Clay pieces of original tile are used to create a plaster mold in order to allow for the casting of new tiles. Tiles are then pulled from clay that is hand-pressed into the created mold. Tiles dry and are then fired.
Fired clay tiles are then glazed and are ready for their final firing to be complete.
color palette and finish:
color- tree green by Stroke & Coat
The tile can be applied in uses such as bathrooms, kitchens, work spaces and other.
