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.
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.
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.
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.
This is a set of handmade 5″ Delft Animal tiles painted in Apple and Juniper green for a customer in Canada.
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 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 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
A new range of Fish tiles – the full range can be seen here: FISH TILES
This range also includes border tiles and large tiles.
