The Impressions collection by Laura Kirar speaks to her background as a sculptor and artist, again choosing ceramic as the medium. Each tile is a study in simplicity that when installed develops into an organic, irregular pattern creating a canvas that is visually intricate and compelling. The process for transferring Kirar's hand-sketched patterns to the tile is reminiscent of traditional methods employed to create handmade wallpaper or batik fabrics.
A rich palette was selected by Kirar, > MORE drawing its references from1940s Hollywood glamour, 20th century haute couture, and personal reverence for nature, which finds a way into many of Kirar's designs. Brilliant yellow Pucker, deep brown Tobacco, warm variegated Mink, retro green Envy, and soft gray Puddle are several hues that make up the inspired 18 shades offered within the collection.^ LESS
