I found a great, unique art piece to add to my home. Framed oxidized tin tiles from TinHouse Designs are amazing. Tyler Kilkenny the artist behind these amazing pieces has brought together history, texture, beauty and uniqueness all in one place. They are so many sizes, designs and colors to these tiles, it was so hard for me to pick just one from many many variations. After visiting TinHouse’s booth at OOAKX11, I was ready to pick my favorite design and here it is.
I love the gradual hue changes on this tile, its beautiful. The different colors on each tile is a result of their age, location and the way the tiles were treated and striped of their paint. The one I picked out has some sort of oil treated treatment done on it, hence the rainbow effect.
Another great thing about these frames are the stories that comes with them. Each single frame has its story printed on its back and the artist’s signature. It’s so cool to know that my little tile was part of a building with a dance hall. Think of all the parties and maybe even weddings this tile has witnessed!
and here is where I put my new one of a kind art. What do you think?
I think my rainbow tile is a bit lonely in my foyer, so I might have to find it a friend on my next visit to the OOAKX11. 😉
