Duck on post: Original hand-painted and hand-glazed ceramic wall tiles


Swan and cygnets: Original hand-painted and hand-glazed ceramic wall tiles

The tiles are hand-painted and hand-glazed.

I use 4" and 6" bisc tiles, and paint with colouring oxides and stains. Some designs are painted first and then covered with a clear glaze, giving a pale ivory-coloured base. Others are first dipped into a tin glaze and then painted, giving a whiter background. A natural consequence of glazing by hand is that the tiles craze over the years. I rather love this natural effect, but not everyone does. It seems to happen less if they are put on the walls with minimal adhesive.

Some single tiles with individual designs can be mixed with plain tiles and arranged into patterns. I can also design whole splashbacks, Agabacks, or bath/shower panels. Take a look at the pictures on this site to give you an idea of what I can do. Please ring or e-mail me if you are interested in seeing more. It is better to see the real tiles, as the colours do not always come across truly on the screen.

The cost of the tiles varies according to different designs.
As a guide:

Painted 6" tiles cost £15 - £20; Plain 6" tiles cost £3.50.

Painted 4" tiles cost £12 - £15; Plain 4" tiles cost £2.50.

Larger 6" coasters - £15
Smaller 3.4" coasters - £12

Larger panels have to be costed individually.
