Flora and Fauna

This was a commission completed in 2020, and is a mixture of three ranges: British Wildlife, Colour Birds and Wildflowers.
It has now been turned into a new range: Flora and Fauna tiles

It is a good example of a customer choosing a mix of tiles from different ranges, along with two corner motifs, and then choosing one colour (CN Green) to unify the tiles. Everything we make is painted to order, so every commission is different.

We enjoy working with our customers to make sure they get just the tiles they want.

These tiles were recently featured in Country Life magazine.

Flora and Fauna

We regularly paint flora and fauna from specific parts of the world. At the moment we are painting some tiles for Ontario with beavers, deer, moose and bears. Below is a panel of Scottish creatures for a castle on the east coast of Scotland. Thistle corner motifs were designed specifically. Coincidentally the customer also went for a green theme.

Scottish Animal tiles

We are currently working on a commission for Ontario, so will soon be adding Moose, Caribou, Beavers and Racoons to this range.

Floral tiles

Floral scene with birds

This is the last commission completed in 2019. Birds and flowers are two of our favourite things to paint. This tile panel is for behind a cooker, for a lovely couple in Hereford. The birds and flowers are all from their garden. Even down to their one legged blackbird they call “Hoppy”. The commission was on 12cm handmade tiles made to fit the space.

The tiles were finished with gold and coloured lustres on all the insects.

100% Design show

Sorry about the shaky camera work!

We had a great time at the 100% Design show in Olympia, London.

Looking forward to some interesting commissions.

Welsh cottage tiles

Cottage tiles

Ed is developing a couple of new ranges of tiles – here is one of them: Welsh Cottage tiles.

These can be personalised too with your own, or a favourite, cottage on them.
It is also possible to have a large tile panel painted in the same style. The colours can also be personalised.

Diatom commission

A commission for some lovely customers in Herefordshire, for a dark area of the kitchen. The before and after pictures show how much brighter and larger it makes the space. We mixed up a special yellow glaze for the commission. We unloaded the tiles from the kiln on a very dark Winter’s day and it was like letting sunshine into the studio.

Handmade at Kew

WE are slowly getting back to normal after a great time at Handmade at Kew, held in Kew Gardens in London. Lots of sales and plenty of interest, so we are hoping to get some Chinoiserie commissions from it. Our dearest wish is to be able to tile a whole room one day! The next show we are doing is Made By Hand in Cardiff City Hall 2 – 4th November 2018.

Another Chinoiserie tile panel for a shower – this time in Oxfordshire.

These are our favourite tiles to paint. When we exhibit at Kew in early October we will be showing only Chinoiserie tiles.
