In case you haven't heard, we've newly released three collections by Kelly Wearstler that feature handmade designs inspired by Wearstler’s signature prints, patterns and motifs in bold and textural materials.
Her love for geometric patterns and architectural details, the precision and clean symmetry, and visually striking and boldly distinctive designs, with a modern nod to sand and stone patterned landscapes, all come into play through her new designs for ANN SACKS.
MEET THE COLLECTIONS
Tableau: ceramic tile collection
The the six designs of Tableau (a part of the MADE by ANN SACKS series) is inspired in large part by Kelly's love of the enveloping beauty of the California coast. The dimensional surfaces are all created by our Portland artisans to reflect her impeccable attention to detail.
“I incorporate materials made by Mother Nature in all my spaces. They are inherently luxurious.”
Liaison: stone mosaics collection
We have long worked in marble stone tiles, and have sought out some of the finest examples available in the marketplace today. Our rich and varied stones in their natural colorations and veining create a perfect canvas for Kelly's designs to be interpreted in virtually limitless ways resulting in this aptly named stone mosaic collection: Liaison by Kelly Wearstler for ANN SACKS.
Maven: ceramic dry-line collection
Maven is comprised of 11 ceramic tiles that pay homage to some of Kelly's most renowned, handpainted designs. The Maven series incorporates her designs into the dry line technique of cuerda seca, a handcraft that has been brought over from Spain, and been used by artisans for centuries. Maven designs are of a single color that stands proud from the black or gray dry line.
“Designing is sort of falling in love over and over. I’m so inspired by all the incredible artists and collaborators I’ve worked with over the years. Painters, sculptors, architects – I have learned so much from those around me. Being introduced to new techniques and materials that I hadn’t been exposed to before has made me a better designer and continually evolves my aesthetic.”
