The striking autumnal colours of these handmade tiles are the perfect way to add personality and style into your home.

The design features rich deep reds, gold and copper colours and a paler straw accent. They offer the perfect way to complement a dramatic colour scheme, or add a punch of vibrant deep colour to a neutral background.

I'm a millefiori artist, and this beautiful pattern started life as a clay design.

Please read the description fully to check tile suitability.

  • This listing is for a SINGLE tile
  • 5mm or 1/4 inch thick
  • glossy reflective surface
  • ceramic
  • gently rounded top edge
  • ridged unglazed back
  • require normal tile adhesive and grouting
  • heat printed in my home studio, using my own millefiori designs

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.

NOT suitable for

  • outdoors or conservatories
  • areas which receive a lot of direct sunlight or UV as the design may fade over the years
  • floors and high-traffic areas
  • not suitable for areas which are regularly scrubbed, bleached or scoured with agressive cleaners. Regular cleaning with non abrasive cleaners is fine!

If you need tiles suitable for these areas, please see my FIRED INK range, which are hard-wearing tiles for floors, pools, and high traffic / high temperature areas.

Tiles are not great candidates for shipping, being both heavy and fragile! However I have now shipped DoodlePippin tiles all over the world, with remarkably few breakages. 

Making time:  Heat printed tiles made in my studio will take 3-5 days from order to dispatch.

Kiln-fired (Fired Ink) tiles take longer. You can expect them to be dispatched 3-4 weeks after they're ordered.

Your tiles will be sent to the address given by you in your order, (please make sure it's the correct one as parcels sent to the "wrong" address are non-refundable). 

My standard UK shipping is Royal Mail Second Class Tracked for small parcels, and DPD or another parcel courier for larger packages over 2kg. A contact number to enable the courier to get in touch with you is extremely useful and in some cases required.

Royal Mail Second Class aims to get your parcel to you in 3-5 business days (including Saturdays). Obviously Christmas, Easter and bank holidays are a bit more of a lottery! If I know there's a problem or a delay, I will contact you via email to let you know.

International shipping:  Unfortunately, since the advent of Covid, the cost of international shipping has gone through the roof. The shipping cost will be based on the weight and size of your parcel. 

Please bear in mind that overseas orders can be subject to unexpected and sometimes very lengthy delays that are outside of my control (eg hold ups in customs). 

​They may also be subject to customs and import duties that I know nothing about and am not responsible for. 

​If you are concerned about local taxes and import duties that your parcel might attract, please check with your local tax / import duty authorities before you order.

The main difference between my heat printed DoodlePippin tiles, and the kiln-fired 'Fired Ink' version, is in their intended use.

colour wheel
Colour is very subjective at the best of times. And every PC, phone and tablet screen shows colours differently, too.
So if you’re trying to match a particular fabric or colour scheme, or aren't 100% sure, I’d strongly recommend buying a sample before going ‘all in’!
I often include video snippets in listings as I find video in daylight is a better guide to how an item looks “in the flesh". 
_
Bear in mind too, that pieces produced in one week may look subtly (or even markedly) different to those produced a month later.  For example, a sample tile ordered in June is unlikely to be identical to a batch I make in September.
_
 Specifications, designs, colourways and availability are subject to change without notice. 
However I do hold onto old designs, so if you want something and can't see it listed, please contact me.
I make tiles in two different "finishes" - DoodlePippin and Fired Ink. 
They're both normal ceramic tiles, but the design is applied in different ways, making them suitable for different uses / applications.
