Cozy up this winter with Tangly pillows and handmade ceramics by Zuzana Licko.
During the design process of Tangly, her most recent pattern font design, Licko experimented by applying these intricate motifs onto different fabrics, including jacquard weaves, to see how these Tangly patterns could be utilized. She then sewed many of these fabric samples into different sized pillows, enjoying the results, which lead to her decision to make them available commercially. Many of her patterns can now be ordered on a variety of fabrics and sewn to order into pillows and other housewares.
A few times a year Licko also produces small sets of hand thrown ceramic vases. With their bright red, orange and green glazes, or muted black and white tones on various shades of stoneware, these simple yet elegant vases will fit any decor.
In addition, Zuzana has recently expanded her ceramic range into producing garden sculptures. Composed from modular handmade pieces, with a nod to mid-century modern, the geometric forms repeat playfully, complementing both plants and architecture. The unglazed stoneware echoes the color palette of terra-cotta planters, and they can be installed both indoor or outdoor.
