Kintsugi Collection

We’re big fans of kintsugi – the famous Japanese art of reclaiming the beauty of the broken by highlighting cracks and repairs in gold – not only for its lovely looks, but for the way it encourages the process of mending (especially in ceramics) and emphasises the charm of the imperfect. We’ve previously covered one company’s rendition of golden repair (Wow Design’s Kintsugi) and today … Continue reading Kintsugi Collection

Ten terrific textured tiles

Textured tiles are increasing in popularity, partly due to the unique subtleties of decoration they can provide an interior, but also due to the increasing designs made available thanks to advances in tile technology. At this year’s Cevisama we focused on the hand-made look – the bumpy organic surface of Moroccan zellige – as well as intricately made ornate panel-looks. There is texture a-plenty cropping … Continue reading Ten terrific textured tiles

Matching the colours of Blue, … Continue reading Cevisama Curiosities IV
