A ceramic artist is getting popularity around the world for transforming her home into a large installation of 10,000 tiles. Kay Aplin, 48, is a ceramic artist who creates attractive designs for tiles. She decorated all the self designed tiles in her home, including bathrooms, kitchens and garden area. She has studied glass and ceramics from Chelsa College of Art. She relies on her skills and decorated her 1920s terraced home in Brighton with 10,000 self decorated tiles. Aplin has spent 11 years on this project, which resulted in great designs of colors.
Aplin has lived and worked in Denmark, Guatemala, Italy, and Spain. After living in different places, 11 years ago, she finally moved to Brighton, where she decided to make her home a venue for exhibitions. She made her house as an artist open house and decided to present her house as a discovery of her art. She has used ceramic Spanish tiles which she was left with from past works.
Kay Alpin said, “I’m inspired by colors, I love colors. I really like anything sumptuous, exuberant, spectacular and over the top. My home is just a really nice place to live. Everyone that comes in expresses amazement, they are just like ‘wow’, they want to move in. I thought it would be nice to turn my home into a showcase of what I do, so gradually I started turning it into a ceramic house. It started off as a very ordinary, 1920s terrace house and now it’s got this life of its own.”
