ROOFTOP INSPIRATION

Oct. 28, 2015 · Creations

The Joid'art Lab team looked to the rooftops for inspiration in creating the Teulats collection, drawing on the shapes and colours of their tiles, bathed in morning light. The vibrant, colourful rooftops of Tuscan houses, art nouveau buildings and the grand 'Casas de Indianos' scattered along the Mediterranean coast share the same sensitivity. A charm that we have captured in these light, unconstrained autumn pieces. The first challenge was to add movement to the small rectangular pieces of metal, set at an angle, one next to the other to form the dynamic strips you see here. Made into a collection of rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings, these strips undulate freely, constantly reinventing their form. The second challenge was to capture the colours of the earth, the autumn leaves and the sea, as reflected by the Mediterranean rooftops. Browns, ochres and blues transformed into cold enamels, the combination of which only adds to their intensity. The Joid'art craftsmen completed each element by applying these enamels to the small matte gold or matte black-plated metal tiles. And there you have it, the creative process behind the Teulats mosaics you can find online at joidart.com and in our stores.
