These ceramic crosses are the creations of Australia-based artist, Jai Vasicek. The mixed media artist is well known for his decorative tiles, crosses and textiles available in his shop, Ahoy Trader. On an interview with The Design Files he describes his work as follows:
“I dabbled in so many mediums but currently I am exploring the use of ceramic tiles. I would say I am heavily influenced by tribal colours and motifs. I think I do have a very rustic style, but also think my work is quite undefined. I’m a big collector of discarded pieces, for example if my Mum smashed a plate by accident, I would always see beauty in the broken pieces and try to capture these elements by using them to create some a collaged piece or big ceramic artwork.”
