Tiffany Scull creates a new range of work (February 2015)
Tiffany Scull, well known for her specialisation in the beautiful technique of Sgraffito and for her images of Birds and Fishhas been researching and developing a new range of work on Tiles. She says: “At the beginning of last year I wanted to expand the pieces I currently make to include a selection of handmade tiles. I had already began to explore flat wall hangings so this felt like a natural progression
After some testing I decided to throw each tile and cut to the desired shape and size. This I found was the most reliable way to keep the tiles very flat but allow me to apply wet slip and cut in detailed Sgraffito to each one.
The first designs to emerge from the kiln are of my two favorite creatures, birds and fish and I am hoping to expand on both decoration and sizes in the near future.” Two of her new pieces (wren and hawthorn tile, 14.5cm. and gold fish tile 19cm.) are shown below – see more of her work on her profile page
