We are a UK company based in Alton Hampshire producing Hand Painted Ceramic Wall plaques,Tiles, Coasters, Plates and Mugs. Each one is therefore unique although the design can be repeated for quantity orders.
Fired ceramic images are colour fast and will outlast any other display media whether indoors or outside in bright sunlight.
Note the images on this page are not glazed photographs. We do not use dye sublimation coatings or stick on decals likely to wear off. Each piece has at least two firings in excess of 700'C, sometimes more. Plates, although primarily decorative, are dishwasher and food safe. We use only certified Lead and Cadmium free "on glaze" paint materials in accordance with EU Directives.

You, the customer, supply us by email with a high resolution photograph of the landmark or building you want us to paint and we will do the rest. Photographs should be at least 2048 x 1536 pixels (ideally 2560x1920) which is well wihin the range of most modern digital cameras.
Prices depend on the production rate and quantity required. As a guide, a single framed 20cm x 30cm tile can cost from £25 each. Obviously cheaper unframed or in larger quantities. 15cm square tile sets are normally costed on the basis of approximately £7 per tile, depending on image complexity.
Customer supplied (new and unwashed) bone china or porcelain pieces can be decorated with an agreed single image from £15. The customer is responsible for all postage costs and must accept all risks in the case of the rare event of heat shock cracks or breakages in the kiln. Should this happen, the Company will decorate a customer supplied replacement piece at no extra charge.
(NB This excludes Fine Art total hand decoration of pieces which are subject to negotiated commission rates)
