These tiles are part of a limited edition series – each individual tile is hand made and hand painted by Sophie MacCarthy. They vary slightly in size and design to the picture, but all with similar effect. The West Wind theme is inspired by Duncan Grant’s original fabric design.
The distinctive imagery in Sophie MacCarthy’s ceramics is drawn predominantly from the natural world and the urban environment. Scatter and flow, rhythm and movement, birds, leaves, fish are themes she has explored using slips, wax resist and stencils to great effect along with a bold and joyous approach to colour.
