This is a shower installation done with unalun tile in smooth finishes. The jade, celedon and cream glazes were used here to create a lush environment connoting jungle and sea forms. The result is a verdant and soft environment suitable for a small space.
I created 4″x8″ cream colored tiles for the side walls of the shower and bath wall. These are undulating tiles that I placed in a somewhat random pattern to interweave the concept of the bulging tile with the flat tile, so as to tie together the totally undulating back wall. They are woven in with handmade tiles from Trikeenan Tileworks in Keene, NH. Fellow ceramic artists and now friends, Kristen and Chris, have been working in tile for years with a highly successful business. They now create tile for Whole Foods.
