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.
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!)
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.
An interview with Carlo for Oriel Myrddin – she is their featured maker at the moment:
Just got to pack everything up now to go to London tomorrow for Ceramics in the City.
I have been meaning to start a blog for ages – just to update the site with commissions which I never seem to get around to putting up. So here are a few photos of stuff we have painted recently…..
