Spring Collection // Art Life
Our new Spring edit is here, and is comprised of pieces that have been carefully selected by us, to help inspire your very own ‘Art Life’. Our aim is to remind you that life can be perceived an ongoing piece of art that is never-ending, and can be created as you go. Sometimes it can be hard to slow down, to be present, and to enjoy the process when living in today’s accelerated world - so this post is a gentle reminder to do just that - take a step back, and surround yourself with art that makes your heart sing.
Within the collection, we have a beautiful range of spirited ceramics, abstract rugs and decorative pieces, displaying unique qualities that have been imprinted by each designer maker. These inspiring artisans have produced pieces that embody excitement, imperfection, freedom and movement - the perfect elements to include within your very own interior still life.
Artist and ceramicist Ana Kerin, of ‘Kana London’ opened up her studio to us to capture our collection, which created the perfect backdrop to showcase our one of a kind pieces. Pictured alongside select Kana pieces, the works of Mari Masot, Hood Ceramics x Nicola Morland, Bloomingville, and Ila Ceramica can be seen, and are just a few of many talented artisans that are involved within the Art Life movement. Featuring expressive, textural glazes along with sculptural, architectural forms, our ceramics were expertly shot by photographer Emilia Cocking, who encapsulated our collection perfectly against the silhouette of Kana’s figurative artworks.

T i n j a, Haar East, Noe Kuremoto and Ibkki to help motivate individuals on their own creative journeys. These pieces are all vastly different in terms of their production, size, shape, material - and each possess their own unique story and background. With this being said, together as a group, they blend together beautifully. A moment in art created to celebrate diversity, and one to acknowledge these differences with love and admiration.
T i n j a - pots such as this one are crafted and fired using age old techniques from the hills of Sejnane, which are characterised by magnificent firing marks found on their surface as a result. We are thrilled to welcome them to the Art Life collection in our store, and we will also adding them to our website very soon to order. We’re just as excited as you are!
In order to add some tactility to our collection, we have coupled our range of ceramics above with one of a kind textiles, thoughtfully chosen and sourced as ever by our passionate team. As our wonderful community already knows, A New Tribe proudly stocks a wide selection of berber rugs, skilfully woven and dyed by artisans across Morocco. Chosen from our vast selection, We have grouped together a family of Boujad rugs, each originating from the same place, but each telling their own story.
Distinctive and unique in their own right, each Boujad rug is made by Berber women using traditional techniques. With this being said however, the women of this tribe do not follow set designs or templates in the weaving process, allowing each piece to be determined according to the whim of the weaver. We like to think of them as paintings in woven form!
Curating your own Art Life collection is all about creating that moment of connection. This allows us to travel the world when in one place, to focus on the little things that nurture and sustain us, and helps us to discover our true selves. We hope that these pieces have inspired you open up your very own gallery, full of interesting artefacts that bring joy to you every day.
