Functional art brings so much more to a space, which is why I’m drawn to the tiles of Lubna Chowdhary, a London ceramicist who specializes in these gorgeous tiles. Her current collection features strong geometric lines and rich colors. As an artist, she “aims to create new histories of place by combining contemporary ideas and technology with traditional craftsmanship and attention to detail.”
She not only works in collaboration with a variety of organizations (you can see her installation resume here), she also creates collections and bespoke work for the home. While an investment, it certainly adds character and personality to a space in a way that big box tiling simply cannot match. Would you, or have you ever worked with an artist to create materials for your home?
