Original Ceramic Art - Flat, Square Tiles

Since Kenney has been using hard lined geometric imagery in his ceramic art a natural progression is to create a shape that in some way mimics the surface decoration.  A square tile format series evolved.  The idea that the tiles can be wall mounted in groupings or modules on the wall paved the way for more varied tile, plate, and sculpture installations.  Instead of only having round plates on the wall, square flat tiles break up the round shapes and add another dimension to an installation.  All of the tiles are fired to mid-temperature (2200 F).  The surface decoration consists of dry clays rolled into the wet clay.  Underglaze designs are applied after bisque firing.  Clear glaze put on afterwards and then glaze fired.  These tiles are wired with sturdy, marine grade stainless cable and stainless fittings.  All of the square tiles here are for sale unless otherwise noted.

I never do copies of my older work. I take chances trying to make art out of each piece. I am always making new underglaze colors by blending the ones I have with new ones.

Arts & Crafts Statement by Douglas Kenney

The difference between art and craft is that art usually does not have a real function in people's lives other than it aesthetic beauty. Craft, on the other hand, has some function in a household. Functional pottery, tile, a vase all have uses. A painting or sculpture works on its aesthetics. Paintings and figurative work have traditionally been thought of as fine art. Also, if it hangs on a wall it can be referred to as art similar to a painting or drawing.

In my work, coming from western art training, I decided to use the wall as a place to display a lot of my work. In western architecture there is a vast quanity of open wall space in homes. From a marketing perspective, as an artist, I decided to compete with painting for this open wall space. Ceramic vessel and object makers always need a shelf or pedestal to display their work. Since the walls are so large, I make large pieces to fill this empty space.
