DESIGNER - xenia taler

i discovered the these stunning designs completely by accident and im so glad i did. i found out about xenia taler through a commission she has had from urban outfitters (see above post). based in toronto xenia designs the tiles and steven koblinsky crafts the clay and glazes. each tile is handpainted without the use of screens or stencils. such beautiful work, i just love it. after a little googling i see that grace from design*sponge has been championing xenia for some time, and has some great shots here on flickr from a trade show.

Xenia's work is beautiful. i am lucky enough to have a small tile of hers bought years back at a show. we share the same city too as our home.

Simply gorgeous! I really love her work and am dreaming of owning a few tiles (first I'd like to own a house I could put them in).
Best tile work out there!!!
