 Sadler Green client, Anja Margrethe Bache, has used our transfer decals to create a ceramic installation exhibition at Officinet in Copenhagen, which was on public view between the 10th October and 2nd November 2014.

The exhibition was the brainchild of our client in collaboration with ceramic designer Ane-Katrine von Bülow.  Their work examined ornamentation as play, revolving around repetition, scale and the combinatory principles of order.  In addition, they set out to show ornamentation as a recognisable figuration along with abstract geometrical pattern.

Sadler Green supplied forty-two A3 ceramic transfer decals for Anja to use on ceramic glazed concrete- a material which she has developed, fired and stoneware-baked.

Further information about the exhibition can be found on her website along with examples of her other work and commentaries.

‘Wall of Challenges’ Mural at Newcastle-under-Lyme Junior School

section

As part of the “inspire a generation” motto from the 2012 London Olympics, the children of Newcastle-under-Lyme Junior School were set the challenge of drawing their personal aspirations for the future, which would form a Custom Ceramic Tile Mural in the main thoroughfare at the school.  Each child had a six inch square tile to decorate with their ambitions.  Once the colourful artwork had been completed, the images were then scanned and created into digital ceramic transfers.  The transfers were then applied to ceramic tiles and fired.  Finally, the ceramic tile mural was installed at the school during the half term break in October 2012 to create the “Wall of Challenges”, which comprises of 265 tiles: one for each of the children who contributed to the artwork, from the Reception class through to Year 6.

Commissioning a Bespoke Tile Mural could not be easier.  Contact Sadler Green to discuss your personal requirements.
