Bryan Kerrigan is an artist who makes architectural tile here in Chicago. The hand sculpted ceramic tiles are oversized, glossy, super 3-d pieces that are more art than decor. Recent installations include Effen Vodka HQ (above), the Morlen Sinoway atelier entranceway, Flybird boutique in Oak Park, and a private estate in Michigan.
Kerrigan also does colorful rubber tile pieces which are framed. We've seen these in person - the quality of the color is gorgeous, reminding us of vintage bakelite.
