Artist Statement

Interiors are a stage for our lives. It’s not just about function; it’s more like scenography” Nika Zupanc
Whilst functional, these tiles also create optical illusion, suggesting space through strategic placement and choice of colour.
Their encaustic earthenware surface is left unglazed or to achieve a water resilience, decorated with a clear glaze and able to decorate and protect walls, particularly in areas
such as the kitchen and bathroom.
They are also an art installation, although geometric and involving digital processes, they retain a sense of the organic, much like ivy climbing a wall, echoing the repetition of shapes and pattern apparent in nature. The pristine shapes set in contrast to subtle marbleised pattern and specks of grog.
Blending traditional methods of slip casting with digital laser cut forms, the tiles capturewandering eyes; inviting you into a depth of colour and form; an immersion prompting you to slip into a daydream.
