Matthew hand rolls, trims, fires, glazes and installs each and every tile by hand. It is a lengthy process when repeated hundreds of times, but it allows him to produce a subtle range of finishes that can only be achieved this way. The clay is red stoneware clay, which reacts with the transparent glaze to create the colour. Matthew has collaborated with two different craftspeople to product the forms on which he then applies his handmade tiles. There is a plywood structure inside the columns for strength and stability and the surface of the table is made from solid English oak. The tiling is finished with terracotta grout.
