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.

Coffee and Tea tiles

This is a set of tiles sent to Australia for a kitchen refurb.
The range was developed years ago for Waitrose upermarkets for their cafés. We took the range off the website a couple of years ago, but now I am revamping it, and it will go back up soon.

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

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!

 

Made By Hand, Cardiff

Here are a few things I will be taking

Studio door

There is some self – seeded fennel outside the studio door which is looking spectacular. The bees love it too!
