Hot Hot Hot!

­­Feeling hot hot hot here in the office! Looking forward getting out and sitting in the garden with a nice cool drink! Ever thought of adding a new view for your garden? You could have your favourite place in the world tiled onto your garden wall, or the side of your house; a window into another world! A photograph or a piece of artwork would really liven up any garden.

Our printed tiles are photographic quality and are completely weather proof so you’ll have a fab view through sun rain or snow!

Mapping the Way!

One year ago we had an enquiry from Rebecca Yorke of Pennine Prospects, a regeneration company who had commissioned internationally acclaimed artist Angela Smyth to paint a huge map of the South Pennines. The map was designed for display at the Hebden Bridge Visitors Centre in West Yorkshire.

It took Angela 6 months to complete the painting. Her lovely quirky style really captures the charm of the South Pennines depicting the local points of interest.

The artwork is very highly detailed and Angela had the artwork scanned in and sent over to us.

We then produced a super imposed visual for Rebecca of the mural in situ to give an impression of how the final mural would look.

Once the visual was approved we produced sample tiles of the mural for colour comparison and image quality. Then we had the go ahead! Printing the artwork on our digital ceramic colour machines at high-resolution we were able to retain even the smallest details so the final piece looks stunning!

Unfortunately there was one tile that got broken during the installation, however, we managed to quickly get it replaced. So in April this year the map was finally unveiled to the public and has received a fantastic response.
