About this project

I am currently developing my own ranges of hand made tiles in different clays, inspired by my recent trip to India and by the tessellating patterns of Islamic architecture and gardens. I would like to explore ways of up-scaling the production of the tiles: working in a collaborative way with groups of people to hand-make tiles or design decals, or collaborating with small scale manufacturer or hand-workers.
