With the new brief we had to be inspired to create work based on a piece of art that caught our eye at the V & A. On a recent trip to London I decided to visit the Victoria & Albert Museum, to make my research and inspiration stronger.
I saw this Tile in the Museum, a repeat pattern tile with Turkish origin. It’s pattern is different every 4 tiles, making the tile as a whole continuously repeat. With Iznik design. This tile was created around 1580, usually tiles with this design are associated with the Shrine of Eyup, which stands just outside the walls of Istanbul. Can be repeated endlessly, often like a textile design.
From here I decided to look further into turkish culture’s, and other popular designs.
