Welcome to our website

Our tiles are all hand made, glazed and decorated in our Oxfordshire studios, in the heart of the English countryside. Since 1976 we have dedicated ourselves to the production of the finest hand made and hand painted ceramic tiles available. As a result we now enjoy an international reputation for some of the most beautiful tiles in the world as a few minutes browsing our site will confirm.

Under Single Tiles you will find the full range of our Delft style, both blue and white and polychrome (coloured) for which we are renowned, plus many more designs, patterns, borders and coloured glazes.  Please look at Testimonials to see what others think of our tiles, and under Gallery to get a look at past projects including Installations. We also have a page with suggested Layouts of our Delft tiles priced to suit different budgets and tastes.  For some special offers on tile panels and single tiles, see Special Offers.

All our single tiles and tile panels are individually created and hand painted to respond to our clients' priorities.  Below you can see how rooms can be transformed with our tiles.  For example, top left is the Venezia design, top right, a selection from our Mixed Delft range.
