Barcelona styled

cmn52

I fell in love with Barcelona tile art when I was gifted a book on it by my mom, during her travels to Spain. The blast of colors, and the crazy combinations of designs was just mind-blowing, and I fell in love with this art form instantly.

The art of tiles was born in Barcelona. Mosaic and ceramic art was a big deal during the history times. Glazed tiles were invented in Barcelona. It was a form of art that was very much appreciated; so much so that different classes of society had different tiles to walk on. While the lower middle class of those times walked on simple bi-colored tiles, the elite and the priests had their own set of tiles which differed on the number of colors, and intricacy of patterns. Pretty flowers and abstract patterns, hand painted and glazed spread around the city.

Although mosaic art began back in 3500 BC in Mesopotamia, the Spanish somehow took to it and perfected it in ways that hasn’t changed to this day. After the fall of Spanish Empire many other cultures took to this art form in different materials like glass and ceramics, which can be found largely in Muslim Architecture and Roman infrastructure. These tiles are so beautifully made, that some are even preserved in museums of Europe.

Enough about history though, because although this art form is absolutely spectacular, and one of my personal favorites, glazing ceramic and using it in art form is now a lot of waste of earth and non-degradable POP. Having said that, this art form in all it’s colors can brighten any mood. So, why just put in under your feet when we can have it handpainted for you on sustainable ware that can light up and brighten your homes?

Thus, Barcelona inspired patterns, handpainted on recycled bottles.
