Art into Architecture – the Faience Revival

Here is a recent article about Faience for the Building Centre by Tamsin Pickeral, Operations Director at Szerelmey with a specialism in Terracotta and Faience.

The last decade has a seen a cautious re-emergence of the use in architecture of ceramics – known in the industry as ‘faience’. More recently this has gathered momentum to such an extent it could be loosely termed a movement. Credit must go to those brave architects who were the first to re-awaken interest in this inspiring material, and also to the clients whose money and vision allowed this to happen.
