Lubna Chowdhary’s Ceramic Tiles
Lubna Chowdhary (www.lubnachowdhary.co.uk) is a London-based artist who works internationally. She creates richly-colored, modular compositions on tiles through a wide variety of precisely controlled ceramic techniques. Chowdhary’s artwork has been featured in interior and exterior architectural spaces. Her recent commissions include BBC, Conran and Partners, and Bellway Homes. Working in collaboration with architects, designers and art consultants, her project proposals are developed to fit the needs of the brief. Her work is available for purchase through her website.
We had the pleasure of framing several collections of her tiles, grouping them and arranging them to create two new compositions. We used handmade floater frames for both groupings of tiles. One had a light teak finish and the other had a dark teak finish. It was a challenge to get all the tiles to appear to be flush with each other since they had varying thicknesses. Together, the tiles unify to create an image, but the floater frame preserves their 3-dimensionality and reminds us that they are individuals as well as parts of a whole.
