Yashika Munjal, an India-based artist who is known for working with clay, specifically terracotta, has released a new project named Pantiles. In this project, Munjal utilises the traditional look and shape of a tile, that may be used for basic construction needs, to give them a new creative function and make them applicable in other areas of everyday life.
Writing about the series Munjal stated: “Pantiles are a series of tiles made with clay with the motive to overthrow the conventional idea that defines an object and it’s function. It aims to bring out the spirited side of the material. Usually, terracotta tiles are used for roofing or covering the walls. This collection tries to sneak beyond the seemingly obvious and provoke interaction between the space, object and user.”
