PORTLAND, Ore. (May 10 2005)
Fleishmans designs for Ann Sacks offer a visually striking alternative to complement the diverse Ann Sacks tile and stone collections. Fleishman, who started his career as a wood sculptor and cabinet maker in the 1970s, gravitated toward concrete as his primary medium. His designs for Ann Sacks include Diamond and Petal, two large-scale, geometric designs; and, Maximus and Tendril, two more intricate designs using floral themes.
A sophisticated color palette was chosen for the textural designs in Gray, Crème, Chocolate and Camel. The tile can be Ann Sacks Andy Fleishman, customized by applying contrasting grout colors on the tile face, then, once set, wiping the grout away from the tile surface to expose the tiles dramatic, etched patterns.
