Gem is Kelly Wearstlers' fourth collection for ANN SACKS. Called Gem to express the ornamental, visual presence and time-honored, age old techniques required to create encaustic tiles. The making of encaustic tiles is a time-honored, centuries’ old technique that combine a mixture of cement, sand, ground marble and pigments, then fired to seal the design. The pattern is not produced by the glaze but instead by combining two or more colors of the clay achieving an appearance of being an inlaid design, with a surface softly worn and timeless in appeal.
