Material: Ceramics | Location: West Wales
Reptile design and produce highly original hand painted tiles and ceramics full of colour, pattern and humour. We work in our purpose built studio in West Wales, on the border of Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire.
We established Reptile in 1988, in the same year that we married. We are both fine art graduates, only discovering the wonders of ceramics at evening classes with Angus Suttie in Lambeth and then with Don Dewar in Bolt Court – both highly inspirational teachers.
In 1992 we started to produce large tile panels for Waitrose supermarkets for their fish and meat counters. We were also selling tiles and wall plaques through Liberty, as well as tile shops and craft galleries throughout Britain. We soon needed more space and relocated from Highgate to our present location.
