HAND MADE ART DECO TILE
Private Residence | Hermosa Beach, CA
I was asked to create large tile motifs for the exterior of a residence in the Los Angeles area; the clients wanted to take the appearance of their Deco-era home from its mix of basic Streamline and Spanish styles to a purely Art Deco aesthetic.
After going through a few rounds of designs, a Deco flora and fauna motif was selected, to be produced in two aspect ratios: a rectangular set and a subset of that motif in a square version. As eight total sets were going to be needed, master designs had to be created, then each tile molded in plaster so that multiples could be made.
