Artist's Description

Photo of Portuguese tiles in the city of Porto in Portugal.

  • Featured on Everyday Women Group

Tiles are one of my great passions and Portugal is a country with a “full” tile architecture.


…“Azulejos (tiles) are found on the interior and exterior of churches, palaces, ordinary houses, schools, and nowadays, restaurants, bars and even railways or subway stations. They were not only used as an ornamental art form, but also had a specific functional capacity like temperature control in homes.
They still constitute a major aspect of Portuguese architecture as they are applied on walls, floors and even ceilings. Many azulejos chronicle major historical and cultural aspects of Portuguese history.”
