Form and function go hand in hand – as our innovative new collaboration with our friends at Bert & May illustrates perfectly. We’ve taken the enchanting designs of nine of their most popular encaustic tiles and have translated them into a porcelain range that is at once gorgeous and stunningly practical.
Fired Earth has a long and rich history of working with designers and design-led brands. For decades we’ve been collaborating with some of the most interesting names in interiors to translate considered visions into products that work perfectly for today’s home.
Bert & May – who are known for their encaustic tiles, rich in natural pigments and with a beautiful chalky finish – have often been asked to recreate their designs in porcelain but were concerned something would be lost in the translation. Until now, that is.
Fired Earth works with artisans and makers across Europe and the wider world, so was able to find just the right producer to press these very special tiles. Ensuring the milky colours and imperfect textures of the encaustic tiles were fully expressed in the new porcelain collection was all-important to both brands and we’re thrilled to say we’ve done just that.
