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.

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!

Featured in The Sunday Times paper

We have got a picture in The Sunday Times news paper for the third time this year.
This is a 2 week feature on contemporary potter to run in conjunction with the Great Pottery Show Down on television.

The tiles sizes and prices are slightly wrong – they are usually on handmade 5″ (127 mm) tiles, and are £16 each. Other sizes are available!
