Old Spanish Details Inspire Terra Cotta Tiles

From: Walker Zanger

The intricate and interwoven lines of traditional Moorish architecture and Old Spanish ornamentation are sources of inspiration for Walker Zanger’s Andalucia collection. The hand-finished terra cotta tiles reimagine these motifs and patterns on a larger scale. The two large-format hexagon tiles, Marrakesh and Fez, are each named after Moroccan cities and feature patterns that create geometric interactions. Additionally, the 10″x10″ design Puerta is directly inspired by an intricately detailed door near Walker Zanger’s San Miguel de Allende, Mexico factory. The San Miguel design finds inspiration in the Mexican city’s baroque Spanish architecture with its layered geometry of a hexagon on a diamond. The cool color palette mirrors Moorish motifs, including shades of white and numerous subtle blues, all in a sophisticated antique patina.
