These recycled cast aluminum Wall Tiles by David Umemoto are quite the pieces of art. I had to ask myself, could I tile a whole wall with these? Maybe a fireplace, back splash framed on a wall, but the whole wall probably not. I love the organic shapes and textures, very cool.
The result of a destructive yet nurturing volcanic activity, and inspired by plants and minerals, this series, with its organic textures, is the representation of a petrified nature. It is the product of the elements of nature and time, of the cycles of life and death, and finally of a regeneration.
