A great way to add individuality to a bathroom, kitchen or utility room.

These are handmade to order, so a slight variation between each tile is to be expected.
PLEASE NOTE: these tiles are heat printed, which means they will scratch if you drag heavy things over the surface, or scour with abrasive cleaners. Normal cleaning is fine!
They're suitable for :-
- splashbacks in kitchens and bathrooms
- cubby holes
- utility rooms
- en suite bathrooms
- guest bathrooms
- mantel pieces
- kitchen walls away from direct heat sources
- decorative fireplace applications (away from heat sources)
- dining areas
They are NOT suitable for:
- outdoors or conservatories
- areas which receive a lot of direct sunlight or UV as the design may fade over the years
- areas which are regularly scrubbed, bleached or scoured with agressive cleaners. (Regular cleaning with non abrasive cleaners is fine!)
If you want tiles in this design that ARE suitable for these applications, please contact me - I may be able to help.
About the technique: All DoodlePippin pieces are created in my garden studio just outside London. I'm a polymer artist, and I specialise in clay techniques inspired by disciplines such as Japanese sword-making and Italian glass work.
The design on these tiles was created using a very ancient glassworking technique called 'millefiori', which has been around since the 6th Century. In fact, pieces made using this technique were found in the Anglo Saxon / Viking burial hoard at Sutton Hoo in Suffolk, England.
If you have any questions I'm always happy to chat - please contact me.
Art deco turquoise blue and taupe tiles
Most of my tiles are heat printed, which means the design is not as abrasion-resistant as mass-produced tiles. Care must be taken not to scratch or damage the surface during installation - tiles awaiting instllation should be stacked face-to-face or back-to-back (the way they arrive) but NOT face-to-back.
Once installed they're durable as long as they're not attacked with extremely powerful cleaning products, acids or abrasives. Normal cleaning is fine!
