A customer kindly sent some photographs of her lovely new bathroom – we painted the Diatom tiles for her at the beginning of the year.
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.
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!
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!)
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!
I had a wonderful time at Made By Hand in Cardiff over the weekend. Plenty of sales and a marvellous array of beautiful crafts on display.
Here are a few pictures of our stand.
Carlo’s tiles and ceramics are currently being exhibited in the Victoria Fearn Gallery in Rhiwbina, Cardiff until the end of June, alongside Ed’s plein air Welsh landscape paintings.
Carlo is exhibiting at Picton Castle in Pembrokeshire for the month of May, in conjunction with Landsker Quilters.
A recent commission for an open stairwell in a new-build house in London.
A Chinoiserie tile panel with magnolia, birds and butterflies.
I am making lots of personalised Christmas decorations – £6.50 each including postage.
You can specify name and hair colour/length for the angels and name and type for the cats.
A recent commission for a kitchen – all on handmade 5″ tiles.
I like the cheerful colours they selected – a totally different look for our Medieval Animal tiles.
A set of 54 Medieval Animal tiles sent out last week with some personalised cat tiles.
I had a thoroughly good time in Cardiff last weekend, and was very happy with our sales.
Here are a few of the things we took:
I am exhibiting at the Geffrye Museum in Shoreditch, London this week – opening evening Thursday 22nd September 6 – 8.30pm (opening evening), then Friday 23rd – Sunday 25th September 10am – 5pm.
It is free entry – an exhibition of 55 potters in a lovely museum.
Here are a few things I will be taking
Some Delft Animal and Bluebird tiles on their way to Hove today.
There is some self – seeded fennel outside the studio door which is looking spectacular. The bees love it too!
We are taking part in an open house event this weekend in The Mumbles – held by Caroline Rees:
