From Xenia’s website:

WHO: Partners Xenia Taler and Steven Koblinsky. Xenia designs the images and Steven crafts the tiles.

WHERE: In their Toronto studio.

WHEN: Since 1996

HOW: Tiles are pressed in molds made of wood, or extruded. Glazes are mixed from scratch. All tiles are decorated by hand.

WHY: Because we hope that one day, a long long time from now, not only will your children fight mercilessly over the wonderful tiles you so wisely purchased, but, even when humankind is forced to venture off this world and fend among the stars, those tiles will be the second or third item on a strict ten item list which your descendents feel they must take along with them on their arduous journey.

More about Grace Eunmi Lee:

I am interested in things that are unnoticed and appear to have little or no significance on a regular basis. As we strive to do better, we often become oblivious to things that surround us. Using forms inspired by micro-organisms, I want to emphasize the importance of the individuality and the collective entity. The creatures are an interconnection of reality and existence. By taking the time to observe and give our attention to these small details, we are soon faced with another form of existence waiting for our recognition. My work is presented in a monumental presence through the accrual of small imaginative elements.
