The lines of traditional Moorish architecture and Old Spanish ornamentation are sources of inspiration for Walker Zanger’s Andalucia collection. The hand-finished terra cotta tiles reimagine these motifs and patterns on a larger scale.

Andalucia reflects a blend of Moorish and European designs found in Seville, Cordoba as well as Granada in southern Spain, revealing both their influences and modern sensibilities. The two large-format hexagon tiles, Marrakesh and Fez, are each named after Moroccan cities and feature patterns that create a variety of geometric interactions. Additionally, the 10-by-10-inch design Puerta, Spanish for door, is inspired by a detailed door near Walker Zanger’s San Miguel de Allende factory. The San Miguel design finds inspiration in the Mexican city’s famed baroque Spanish architecture with its layered geometry of a hexagon on a diamond.

The color palette mirrors Moorish motifs, including shades of white and numerous blues, all in an antique patina.
