Embrace Timeless Elegance: Introducing NEW Decorative Tiles to our Iconic Artworks collection

In a world where design trends come and go, there’s an enduring appeal to the classic elegance and intricate patterns of heritage designs. Established in 1986, our Artworks collection features timeless, hand crafted and lovingly designed tiles, created in our Devon factory by our skilled team of designers and craftspeople and, today, we’re thrilled to announce the launch of our latest decorative additions to this cherished collection.

Last autumn, we introduced four new glaze colours which have quickly found themselves at the heart of Artworks. To complement these rich and beautiful tones we decided to revisit the archives for inspiration to develop some hand crafted decorative tiles to work alongside our latest glazes. The outcome of this archive revival? Four new tube lined tiles with coordinating borders, as well as three new relief moulded patterns in a selection of gorgeous colourways.    

 

New Tube Lined Tiles

Our passion for time-honoured design inspired us to revive some of our classic tube lined designs. Tube lined tiles, are a beautiful example of traditional tile craftsmanship that adds a touch of elegance and heritage design to any space. Originating in the Victorian era, these tiles are created using a technique where raised lines of liquid clay are applied to the tile surface, creating intricate designs that are then filled with our sumptuous, colourful glazes.

Bringing a new lease of life to our tube lined range, we've paired some of our beloved classic glazes – alongside our latest colours - with the new decorative patterns to create a fresh take on the originals.

Lafleur on Ascot Blue

Our Ascot Blue glaze was introduced last autumn and crowned our Tile of the Year 2022 because of its contemporary denim blue tones and sumptuously reflective surface. The Lafleur design, inspired by Maison Lafleur - a Belgian Art Nouveau house, designed by architect François Guiannotte in 1908, was pulled from our archive and reimagined in this fresh colour palette resulting in a pretty floral design with a heritage feel.

Lafleur on Victorian Green

For those with a more daring design style, Lafleur has also been recreated using our iconic Victorian Green glaze which showcases a striking look alongside our Jade Breeze glaze and yellow floral detailing.

Elysée on Vintage White

Inspired by the Art Nouveau detailing of the Elysée Palace French music hall, designed by architect Antoine Chanet, this ornate design features our gorgeous Duchy Pink glaze alongside Victorian Green and Vintage White to create a soft, romantic feel with vintage appeal.

Dauphine on Victorian Green


Inspired by Porte Dauphine – the last remaining original Art Nouveau Metro entrance designed by architect Hector Guimard in 1900, our Duchy Pink glaze makes another appearance in this beautiful floral design alongside the green tones of Jade Breeze and Victorian Green and hints of Burgundy.

New Relief Moulded Tiles

We are also proud to present a collection of new relief moulded, hand crafted tiles. Embracing age-old techniques, these new additions have undergone extensive trials and development amongst our designers and factory teams.

Unlike flat tiles, relief moulded tiles features three-dimensional patterns and textures creating a raised design that adds depth and character to surfaces. Our new additions were originally hand-carved by our skilled production team before being modelled from plaster, once again by hand, and finished using traditional glazing techniques.

Offering our Jade Breeze and Ascot Blue glazes as single colour options, or exquisitely hand-painted two glaze combinations, our relief moulded tiles are perfect for incorporating delicate detailing derived from unrivalled British craftsmanship.
