Ann Sacks® introduces new designs to Maven by Kelly Wearstler

News: March 2018

Ann Sacks has again partnered with internationally renowned designer, Kelly Wearstler, on new designs to the Ann Sacks Maven Collection by Kelly Wearstler. As with all of Wearstler’s designs, these latest tiles joining Maven – Check, Concentric, Esker, and Greek Key – pay homage to Wearstler’s vast body of work, personal and professional inspiration, and how she perceives the world and its innate beauty.

The Maven series incorporates the dry line technique of cuerda seca, a handcraft that has been brought over from Spain, and been used by artisans for centuries. Maven designs are of a single color that stands proud from the black, grey or white dry line. The series offers 30 colors from which to choose. The marriage of modern design and ancient craft is executed through screen printing and hand-painting to achieve a tactile finished product. In addition to the four new designs, Maven also offers Solstice I, Solstice II, Solstice III, Ojai, Breakwater, Islander, Zuma, Dune, Canyon, Vortex, and Woven, bringing the Maven portfolio to 15 ceramic tile inspirations.

Reflective of some of her most renowned designs, Wearstler is constantly exploring new ways to interpret the world around her through her works. “Designing is sort of falling in love over and over,” said Wearstler. “I’m so inspired by all the incredible artists and collaborators I’ve worked with over the years. Painters, sculptors, architects – I have learned so much from those around me. Being introduced to new techniques and materials that I hadn’t been exposed to before has made me a better designer and continually evolves my aesthetic.”

Perfect for all interiors and exteriors dependent upon climate and method of installation, the designs are currently offered in an 8”x8” field tile. From statement-making walls to backsplashes, fireplace surrounds, and light use flooring, Maven by Kelly Wearstler for Ann Sacks, brings some of Wearstler’s most iconic designs to Ann Sacks.
