With a background in graphic design, Gilles de Brock is one to embrace an unbridled curiosity to constantly learn new skills without fearing where they might lead. So after teaching himself how to make tufted carpets, De Brock wanted to try his hands at ceramics, too. Not just the traditional craft of clay and kilns. It’s the translation of digital designs onto ceramic glazed tiles that has kept him busy for the past years. During this time, he developed, built, and programmed a machine that can print ceramic glazes on bisque tiles. The resulting tableaux depict an odd, unplaceable aesthetic that holds a unique mix of mechanical precision with a hand-made character.
