Shaped and hand-painted blue-and-white ceramic tile. Grapes, leaves and vines twist into a dense rococo frame around a four shelf bookcase. Edges of all the tiles are glazed so painting wraps seamlessly around corners as tendrils curl into the interior of 'alcoves' formed by shaped valances hanging from the edge of every shelf. It's a playful, art history informed art piece that could be expanded over an entire wine room, eat-in kitchen or outdoor living space.
This is a showroom 'wow-wall' in the Boston Design Center, MA.
