Plain Tile in Blue
Plain Tile in Blue is part of The Rustication range, an exclusive new collection by ceramic artist and Jerwood Award Winner, Matthew Raw, for The New Craftsmen. Created in collaboration with handmade tile craftsmen at Froyle Tiles in Surrey, each tile is hand pressed and glazed with Matthew's unique glaze recipes. Available to buy in multiples or singularly to form unique layouts and feature walls using the other patterns and colours in the range.
The Rustication range is Matthew Raw's first commercial tile range and is exclusive to The New Craftsmen. Matthew's attraction to the tile is layered and deep - from their simple form to their vast historical and cultural significance - it has formed the basis of his work and research, including winning the Jerwood Makers Award in 2014 and being appointed the Ceramics Residency at the V&A Museum in 2015. For this tile range, Matthew draws inspiration from the historical masonry technique of 'rustication' where texture and pattern form the surface of a stone block. The result is a collection of four different tile options available in three rich colours including blue, mustard and green - a palette that invites you to layer and combine the tiles in order to create unique combinations for an interior space.
