Welcome to Salsbury Ceramics


picture tiles

Our tiles are slabbed-rollled white earthenware, which gives a good surface for painted decoration. A pencil sketch is overlaid with washes of underglaze colour and painted line to bring out the detail. Once fired and glazed our tiles are set in a hand made frame of recycled wood - either left untreated or polished to reveal the surface patina.
leaf tiles

Our leaf tiles are made from fresh leaves picked and pressed into soft clay tiles. When dry the tiles are fired, the leaf burns away leaving an impression in the clay. The tiles are then coloured, glazed and set in a reclaimed wood frame.
poppy tiles

Our poppy tiles are made by pressing the seed pod head into a soft clay tile. The natural variation in the sead head design ensures each tile is an individual.
