DECORATIVE TILE ART

SOMETIMES A SIMPLE ORNAMENTAL SHAPE CAN BE AN ATTRACTIVE LOOKING DESIGN, FOR DECORATIVE TILE ART. THIS ABOVE EXAMPLE IS THEMED IN THE VICTORIAN APPEREANCE AND STYLE. A MIXTURE OF WHITE CERAMIC TILE AND DECORATIVE METALWORK OFFERS THE HISTORIC IMPRESSION OF THE PAST.

ABOUT THE TILE... 8X8 WHITE CERAMIC FLOOR TILE ENGRAVED WITH AN OLD ORNAMENTAL PATTERN, USUALLY SEEN ON MOTIFS FOR BOOKBINDINGS OR IN TEXTILE PATTERNS. AFTER THE DESIGN WAS LIGHTLY ENGRAVED INTO THE TILE, SOME RUBY PAINT WAS INLAYED FOR HIGHLIGHT.

HANDCRAFTED METALWORK ALSO IN A VICTORIAN STYLE. CONSITING OF 1/2 X 1/2 INCH ANGLE IRON FOR THE SQUARE FRAME STRUCTURE, WITH 1/8 INCH STEEL ROD FORMED INTO BORDER ORNAMENTS ON THE PERIMETER OF THE FRAME ITSELF.

THE FINISH ON THIS DECORATIVE TILE FRAME IS A BLACK BASE COAT WITH A HAND RUBBED METALLIC RUBY SECONDARY FINISH. YOU MIGHT FIND THIS DECORATIVE ART TILE INTERESTING IF YOU HAVE SOME ADMIRATION AND TASTE FOR VICTORIAN DESIGN, I CERTAINLY LIKE CREATING THESE PIECES ALTHOUGH THERE NOT AS POPULAR AS OTHER STYLES, FOR ME I THINK IT IS THE DISCIPLINE OF FOLLOWING A CERTAIN TECHNIQUE THAT GIVES ME INSPIRATION.
