We believe in...
Providing exceptional quality and offering unique and desirable products that go the extra mile:
All of our products are completely handmade. The clay is rolled out by hand, sometimes requiring subtle textures to be impressed into it, before being allowed to dry a little. The tiles are then hand-cut, whereas many other handmade tile makers use moulds. We find that hand-cutting keeps to the truest sense of the term “handmade”, adding to the unique nature of the product. After a first firing, colours and glazes are applied either by brushing or dipping. The underglaze colours and the glazes are all carefully hand-mixed from raw materials and oxides, resulting in the most beautiful, vibrant colours that are impossible to replicate in a factory produced tile. Some of our work is also sawdust-fired outside, using locally sourced seaweed and driftwood to interesting effect. Each tile is a unique, hand-produced work of art in itself, as well as having practical uses. Our tiles are made from hard-wearing stoneware clay, which is less porous and more durable than terracotta clay. The creative designs exude quality and opulence, adding value, intrigue and a topic of conversation to every wall that they adorn. We make sure that you will never have to compromise on either form or function.
