 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.

Sedgemoor Dementia Support Centre Exterior Tiled Mural

Sedgemoor-Care-Industry-News-300-x-200

Sadler Green has continued their collaboration with renowned ceramic artist, Robert Dawson, who designed the exterior Ceramic Tile Mural for the recently opened £1.2 million Sedgemoor Dementia Support Centre in Norris Green, Liverpool, which was unveiled to the public on Thursday 16th May 2013.

Dawson, well-known for his “aesthetic sabotage” brand of creative design, is a specialist in ceramic tile wall murals and was on site permanently to check the progress of this latest tile mural installation.  The innovative centre took 18 months of planning, design and construction and its aim is to provide a model for dementia-friendly design; delivering a range of social and health services in an open and welcoming environment.

The artist, who studied at Camberwell College of Arts and the Royal College of Art, has created a definitive ideology, focussing on the disconcerting, uncertain elements of artistry within his creations. Dawson incorporates both ceramic historical sources and also the most recent innovative ceramic print technologies within his artwork. It involves a consideration of the nature of surface decoration, using historical processes as well as reflections upon other phenomena of the ceramic surface, for example technical flaws within the production process.  He applies advanced photographic deformation and computerised image processing techniques to tiles or plates, creating unusual perspectives and deforming traditional decorative motifs.

The artist has worked with prestigious companies such as Wedgwood, John Lewis, Hilton, Selfridges and Habitat, using his signature designs to create patterns that play with your senses, morphing and warping across the products, to create a product that is ultimately very pleasing but different and unique. Sadler Green are proud to continue their association with the artist on a range of bespoke, customised ceramic tile mural projects.
