I’m really loving the recent trend of using digitally designed images on the very traditional media like clay and ceramics. There was Scott Rench, who’s work(computer generated images printed with a ceramic glaze onto clay) I fell in love with. Now there’s Digitile Designs by ceramist Dominic Crinson. Crinson transfers digital images onto ceramic tiles, and his products are stunning- fresh, different, and very artistic.
The same idea is also available for wallpaper, carpeting, and floor tiles.
My favorite design is called “Moco”(above), inspired by Moorish arabesque designs. I absolutely love the combination of a very traditional form of Arabic art and digitization. How does this pattern look when implemented? It actually looks pretty cool, check out a product in the gallery here.
