Facade focus :: Ceramic architectural tiles

Spring is in the air and my craving for color is still in full swing! I stumbled upon an image of a beautifully textured building screen and had to know more. The work of Toni Cumella, a Barcelona ceramic artist, is at once retro and futuristic. Mr. Cumella's background in industrial engineering paired with his family's legacy in the art of ceramics, come together in these large scale architectural installations that bridge craft and technology. For more fantastic projects showcasing this artist's collaborations with leading edge contemporary architects visit his studio's website at Ceramica Cumella
