ORNAMENTAL DESIGNS

INTERGRATING ORNAMENTAL DESIGNS INTO OTHER MEDIUMS AND MATERIALS, SUCH AS TILE SURFACES IS A GREAT WAY TO EMPHASIZE ORNAMENTAL ART. ONE CREATIVE TECHNIQUE IS USING EXISTING OBJECTS AS A STARTING POINT, FOR EXAMPLE, PLAIN FLOOR TILE CAN BE USED LIKE A CERAMIC CANVAS OF SORTS.

ORNAMENTAL TILE ART DESIGN

ART TILE DESIGN

THE PICTURE ABOVE SHOWS A FLORAL ELEMENT INLAYED ON A WHITE RIALTO FLOOR TILE, LOCATED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TILE SURFACE. A BULBOUSLY SHAPED PATTERN WITH AN EXTENDING LEAF AND SPEAR OUTCROP, PRESENTS A BOLD DECORATIVE IMPRESSION. A SINGLE FLOWER TOPS OF THIS DESIGN WITH A LITTLE ORGANIC DELICACY.

LIGHTLY ENGRAVED FOR DEPTH AND TEXTURE, ALSO HELPS PROTECT THE BLACK AND BURGUNDY PAINT COMBINATION THAT FILLS THE OVERALL INLAY.

DESIGN ON MARBLE

ORNAMENTAL DESIGN

ANOTHER TILE ART DESIGN, SIMILIAR IN SHAPE, BUT BRIGHTER IN COLOR. THE VIVID YELLOW AND RED OUTLINE STANDS OUT AGAINST THE MARBLEIZED TILE SURFACE. A SUN SHAPED SYMBOL EMERGING FROM THE CENTER OF THE MARBLE CREATES A STRIKING DECORATIVE THEME.

DEORATIVE FLOURISH

THE ABOVE ORNAMENTAL CHARACTER IS A DECORATIVE INLAY ENGRAVED INTO A GUSSET ( TRIANGULAR PLATE FOR REINFORCEMENT ), USUALLY THESE FLOURISHES ARE COMMONLY SEEN EMBELLISHING BORDERS ON LETTERS AND WRITINGS. THEY ARE ALSO GREAT WITH METAL AND IRONWORK, A WAY OF ADDING A CREATIVE MARK TO AN OBJECT. THIS PARTICULAR IMAGE IS A CLOSE-UP OF A BASE FROM A RATHER STOUT DECORATIVE PLANT STAND
