Marie Balian: Weaving Enchanting Tales Through Artistic Tiles and Painted Tile Murals

Marie Balian, a name synonymous with breathtaking beauty and exquisite craftsmanship, has been painting her dreams onto ceramic tiles for decades. Hailing from Jerusalem, her artistic legacy has transformed walls and floors into mesmerizing galleries where nature’s whispers and vibrant folklore come alive.

Balian’s journey began in the renowned Balian Studio, a family haven steeped in the ancient art of ceramic tile making. With her potter husband Setrak, she honed her skills, mastering the delicate dance of brush and glaze.

And what stories she tells! From the graceful sway of palm trees, peacocks, dancing gazelles, sailing ships and the themes of paradise. Balian’s murals are tapestries woven with the threads of imagination.

Each tile, hand-painted with meticulous detail, becomes a fragment of a larger narrative. The “Olive Tree of Jerusalem,” for instance, transports you to a peaceful oasis, where birds flit among the leaves and gazelles graze under the benevolent gaze of the ancient tree.

Balian’s artistry transcends mere decoration. Her murals become integral parts of the spaces they inhabit, breathing life into homes, churches, and public buildings. Whether adorning a kitchen backsplash or gracing a grand entrance, they invite contemplation and ignite the joy of discovery.

Today, Marie Balian’s legacy continues to inspire. His son, Neshan Balian, now leads the Balian Studio, carrying forward the torch of artistic excellence. Together, they keep the magic of hand-painted tiles alive, ensuring that future generations can experience the enchantment woven into every stroke of their brush.

So, the next time you encounter a mesmerizing tile mural, take a moment to appreciate the artistry behind it. You might just find yourself stepping into a world where beauty reigns supreme, a world painted by the dreams of Marie Balian.
