clé has introduced the Elements Collection, handcrafted by British ceramicist Boris Aldridge. The Elements Collection is comprised of square and hex shapes of hand formed stoneware tiles in 7 nature inspired elemental colors. The 4″ tiles are either solid ceramic or filled with crushed glass, either turquoise or recycled white, that has been melted and cooled, creating a crackled effect.
Boris Aldridge mixes his own glazes, brushing each tile with several layers of color to achieve a painterly effect of depth and complexity. The tiles can be installed indoors and out, on vertical and horizontal surfaces. See clé Rorschach Tile Collection by Timorous Beasties.
The new Elements Collection is filled with the nuances of Aldridge hand. From his surface undulations and glaze flow, to the pooling of their recycled glass interiors, Elements is aptly named. Each of these surface characteristics are full of the forming, painting and carving of a master craftsman whose expertise allows for a porcelain collection of masterful modern imperfection. clé.
