OriginEdit

Gaudí revolutionized Catalan architecture by mixing various styles such as Neo-Gothic, Baroque and Modernism with different mediums like stained glass, wrought iron, marble and plaster. He took inspiration from oriental studies, devotion to his Catholic faith and exploration of natural form and shape, leading to some truly unique buildings.

Casa Batlló was constructed with few straight edges, opting for a façade of bulbous windows, colorful trencadís walls and a curved roof meant to evoke a dragon. His masterpiece the Sagrada Família is even grander in scope, planning 18 tall spires to represent Biblical figures while the interior resembles a forest canopy. The church is expected to be completed in 2026, a century after Gaudí’s death.

EffectsEdit

Damaging the tile will cause it to attract any leftover waste material towards it. Most of the material is either construction supplies or random junk, but all of it can still be reused for a new purpose. While the ceramic gathers unused trash, the chisel creates more. Striking it against a surface causes the outlines of objects to shatter, falling apart like dry dirt. The tiling continues pulling in whatever the chisel creates so the user can enact their creativity with an unlimited supply at hand.
