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.
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.
This is a set of handmade 5″ Delft Animal tiles painted in Apple and Juniper green for a customer in Canada.
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.
Some star tiles for behind the sink:
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.
