Based on a series of ceramic tiles intended for a tabletop, Glaze expands with porcelain—a medium that has long been a focus. Glaze’s design began with a grid-like arrangement of four-inch-square tiles that was glazed to create fluid colour mixing and undulation across neighboring surfaces.

Its translation to a woven design enlists a variety of woven textures to mimic the overlapping tones, previously achieved in ceramic glaze. Balancing structure with movement, Glaze merges fluid and rectilinear motifs within a detailed, domestically woven construction.
