SKU #T31032

 

this graphic, three-dimensional wall tile, designed by italian architect cristina celestino for fornace brioni, was inspired by the pathways and hedges of old italian formal gardens and is an exploration of natural cotto molded into geometric, modern shapes.

cotto is given a more contemporary feel with the design of this textural monochrome pattern; each tile is made by hand in the fornace brioni pottery using a wooden mold.
