Underground 150 - Edwardian tiles

 

Underground 150 Collection


Fired Earth and Transport for London (TFL) have
announced an exciting collaboration in the 150th year of the London Underground.


Fired Earth – itself celebrating 30 years – was asked by TFL to survey the London Underground archive and to choose the most significant and beautiful tiles originally used within stations and on the platforms. Then – using the original moulds – Fired Earth were asked to create an updated range of tiles…

Edwardian – From 1903, architect Leslie Green was commissioned to design over 50 new stations including decorative relief work in an Arts and Crafts style.  Some of the stations featured tiles in pomegranate and acanthus leaf designs, alongside base tiles and dados in matching shades. One hundred years later these tiles are now available to purchase for the first time.

Made at the same English works that created the original tiles, these tiles have been handcrafted at the World Heritage Site in Ironbridge in Shropshire, where the Industrial Revolution began in 1709.
