Johnson Tiles at London Craft Week

BEAUTIFUL BLUE AND WHITE ILLUSTRATIONS REPRODUCED ON PORCELAIN TILES TO CLAD NEW PAVILION AT LONDON CRAFT WEEK

The project is the latest in a series of artist collaborations from Johnson Tiles, which last year saw the manufacturer working with textile artist Ptolemy Mann, London design studio David David and Danish artist Nina Beier. Johnson Tiles has also worked with CAA in the past, most notably in the creation of bespoke tiles for the vibrantly-coloured bathroom in the CAA gallery, designed by CAA member, Ptolemy Mann.

The Crafted City, an exciting public commission funded by the Arts Council England, is a project conceived by CAA, in which a beautifully crafted pop-up space will serve as a flexible meeting and learning space throughout London Craft Week, hosting a series of events, activities and talks from high profile artists and makers.

Johnson Tiles is a keen advocate of collaboration with artists and designers so it fits very well with us in terms of what we do. The tiles being used for the pavilion will really show the flexibility and adaptability of the Artile product.”
