Solway Tiles

About this project

These tiles are based on a series of aerial views of the Solway area which show on the land use and the surface changes caused by farming.
From the air, the vast expanses of sand exposed at low tide are alive with seabirds, debris and tangled stake nets, long disused.

The tiles are made to hang on a wall, to lay flat or be propped up. Working in porcelain allows for a fine finish and tiles are tough though seemingly fragile. Copper is added to give surface details.
