Ceramic Tile Designs Worldwide
Ceramic Tile Designs Worldwide have a colorful cultural tradition in home decoration...
Great historical buildings such as: palaces, churches, mosques, government buildings, and cultural centers, are National Treasures of Art and Architecture. Museum collections of ceramic tiles worldwide archive important artifacts in social and art history...
And of course, Ceramic Tile Designs are beautiful expressions of Geometric Art.
Here are just a few starter links to the vast creativity that designers and craftsmen have contributed to making homes "homey"...and beautiful:
These are examples of beautiful Moroccan tiles.
The image below consists of only 2 tiles, that have been enlarged and cropped off at the top and bottom. So you get to see some excellent Geometry Detail, but not the full picture intended...
The next image below this one consists of 9 complete square tiles, so you get to see the full intended image, but at a reduced size...
Enjoy both images for their remarkable Geometry and Craftsmanship...
And if you look carefully at the 3 x 3 square tile patterns, and observe the various patterns and 'flows' and symmetries, and weavings, and curves, and shapes and angles, etc.... you may discover some amazing things...which you might list and develop into your own creative projects and variations, including: colorings, collages, paper constructions, etc.
Note: I have just added a new Page called:
Nets for Geometric Solids
This page has 15 Geometric Solids ( Kool Stuff) to build from paper printouts...
2. Italian "Brown" Design Tiles
3. "The Roman Mosaic from Lod, Israel" discovered intact during a road renovation project in 1996, revealing a stunnigly well-preserved mosaic from about 1700 years ago!
Including photographs, text, video interviews and explantions of the excavation recovery process and restoration and conservation process to move the entire mosaic to a newly built museum in Israel, and now on loan to the Metropolitan Museum in New york City.
4. Geometric Patterns in Islamic Art from the Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History (The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City)
Note: The series of artifacts included here are not all ceramic tile, some are textiles, wood carving and inlaid materials, paper illustration, metal bowls, marble, stained glass, carpet, etc. But all of these objects have dominant geometric patterns similar to the ceramic tiles viewed above.
