Welcome Side Table with Shelf
An exclusive, tile-clad side table made by award winning ceramicist Matthew Raw for The New Craftsmen. The detail of the design is a product of Matthew’s love and commitment to the versatility of the tile, with each one individually hand-made and glazed by Matthew to cover and wrap around the surface and interior of the table. Even the sloping handles are handmade and glazed with his signature rich glaze recipes. Its compact size makes it ideal for a sofa or bed side table. This table can be made with a soft-close drawer or shelf and in a range of glaze colours- pleaseenquirefor further details.
The Welcome Collection is inspired by the traditional adorning of interiors and exteriors of Britain's railway stations for 150 years where tiles were utilised for their intrinsic functionality to cover large and irregular surfaces and their ability to be wiped clean in the era of the coal-hungry, steam trains. Stations were also transitory spaces, welcoming people each and everyday, and still are to this day. Drawing on this legacy, Matthew wanted to develop functional pieces entirely clad with tiles that would also intrigue and welcome someone when they arrived home, thus playing with themes of familiarity and nostalgia.
Material: Glazed earthenware or stoneware clay with timber base
All of the tiles are handmade – rolled, dried, fired and glazed - by Matthew in his studio. Matthew worked with a furniture maker on the carcass design to allow the 12cm x 5cm tiles to flow over its surfaces, inside and out. The beautiful collection of glazes are the same are developed by Matthew to his own recipes.
