Diatom Tiles

A customer kindly sent some photographs of her lovely new bathroom – we painted the Diatom tiles for her at the beginning of the year.

Wild Flower Tiles

We have had a couple of commissions this year for full colour wild flower tiles – I think these will be much more popular than the monochrome versions.

Chinoiserie tiles

We just had some photos back from a kind customer – some Chinoiserie tiles in a shower.
We are thinking of re-doing our own shower after seeing these!

New and updated ranges for 2018

We have three new ranges for 2018: Galleons, Wildflowers and Delft Birds & Bees.

We also have two completely revamped ranges: Delft Animals and Diatoms.

It feels good to see new and improved ranges going on the website – I feel we are still getting better after 30 years in business (this March!)

Black and white tiles for above a cooker

This is a commission we have just finished and installed locally, near Cardigan.
All black and white handmade 5″ tiles, depicting a variety of local places of interst along with over 30 local wild flowers.

I have decided to make the wild flowers a new range and will try some out in full colour.
I have always had a thing about wild flowers!
