NEISHA CROSLAND-TILES

I have always loved Neisha Crosland's Textile designs . There is something ethnic about them which gives a sense of how well traveled she must be. In 2009 I was assisting on a House and Garden photo-shoot and we were using her tile designs for flooring. It was then that I fell deeply in love and was inspired to take on ceramic tile making. She collaborated with Alvaro de Ferranti of De Ferranti ,to design these beautiful and unique tiles. They are handmade and hand painted ,glazed on terracotta. With a unique distressed matte finish that makes them feel as if they have just been uncovered in a ruin. These earthy hues are available in several colours too. I love them all!

Thank you for sharing. Very sophisticated and indeed evokes a person who has traveled and gained from experience from different cultures. Will do check out her website when I have time.
