Object of the day: Jacqueline Talbot tiles

Unusual tiles are a find. And these, by artist Jacqueline Talbot, are just that.

In 2009, Jacqueline experimented with photographing her paintings, intending to use them to create digitally printed wallpaper. But then discovered she could digitally reproduce her work onto tiles... one kiln later, and a business was born.

I think they're beautiful, and beautifully different. They aren't intended for use on floors, but are safe around fireplaces and as oven splashbacks, or just as a decorative wall feature.

They're reasonable too: prices start at £4.50 per tile for the smallest size, 9.8cm x 9.8cm, and go up to £14 apiece for the largest size, 19.8cm x 19.8cm. Jacqueline also creates bespoke designs on request.

Had I not gone for all-black for the downstairs loo, a totally tiled power room in the style of the above arrangement would have worked a treat. Too startling? Be inspired by this incredible tiled house in Mali. Tiles were also all over London Design Festival this year, including beautiful displays by Bert & May and some cool collaborations, notably the British Tile Collection series with Workhouse and guests (see a couple of teasers from my Instagram feed below).

I don't think the gallery on Jacqueline's website does her beautiful ceramic artworks justice, but I do like the featured splashback, above.
