We were originally commissioned to design this tile compass to replace a similar garden feature which had become badly damaged. It was a challenging project from the design through the various stages of production.
The tiled compass features the four cardinal points and four intercardinal points. A Tudor Rose circular tile hand made in bass relief features at the centre of the design, finished in a beautiful vibrant blue glaze.
To give a flavour of the work involved, each tile was hand pressed in stoneware clay and then individually cut to the shape from a template. Each point of the compass was hand carved and the glaze was specially designed to be non slip – ideal for outdoor use.
Fired to 1200°C, these stoneware tiles are completely frost proof and will therefore continue to look beautiful for years to come.
