The Grammar of Ornament Tile Pattern


Design Description


This stencil's name comes from Owen Jones's 1956 influential book on interior design and two-dimensional motifs! It is inspired by a long British and French heritage of late Victorian design that one finds depicted in the book. This design was released in September of 2019 as part of our tile design series and really pushed us to apply design elements in ways we had not previously. There are a lot of built in intricacies, some of them breaking with rules of symmetry in a playful but pleasing manner.
