Bespoke Hand Drawn Tile – Framed Wall Art in 4 sizes


Images shown are previous commissions as examples – your piece would be created especially for you using your text.

This special tile is a bespoke creation, especially for you. I will make a line drawing to complement your text and it will be added to a patterned tile and painted in a colour wash of your choice.

My work is all about linking memories, sentiment and nostalgia to transform an everyday object into a special gift.

“I love to use a line or quote that strikes a happy chord in your memory; I pair the phrases with simplified stylised line drawings in the clay”.

Steps & Terms

“I want to make sure I create a special piece for you, the idea behind these pieces is a very pared back stylised image with text, think less is more. The more freedom you give me, the better I will be able to do this.”.

  • You provide the initial concept, which can be just an occasion, it can be a line from a song, poem or quote or it could be an idea for the image and any colours you think will suit.
  • I will create a rough sketch in pencil of the idea for your approval and you can make changes at this point. If changes are requested you will get another opportunity to approve. If we need to make further changes then a further design fee may be charged.
  • Once the design drawing is approved the making, firing and mounting of the piece should take 3-4 weeks. The piece can then be packed for postal delivery or collection.

I recommend names, dates, and messages be handwritten on the back of the frame rather than incorporated into the design of the tile. I can add this for you if it is being sent directly to the recipient.

How to order

  1. Write chosen text, colour & image ideas to the box above. Check the character count for your selected size.
  2. Add the Hand Drawn Tile to the basket
  3. Add the date you required the piece to the comments section (3-6 weeks lead time)
  4. If you wish to have text handwritten on the back please also include this in the comments section and any note to accompany the delivery note.
  5. I will email you to confirm your initial idea before commencing the design drawing.

Custom made pieces take from 3 to 6 weeks due to the processes involved in producing ceramics. I am always happy to work to your deadlines if they are achievable. I will contact you if any changes or amendments are required with your text or if we don’t think we can make it to your date.

Beautiful bespoke tile.

I contacted Sarah about making a special gift for my new born niece. I explained my idea and Sarah got back to me immediately and said she would be happy to create it. She sent me the sketch before making the ceramic to make sure I was happy with it. We all love the piece and know my niece will have it forever. Thanks so much.
