Sally Bourne’s Tiles

Sally Bourne nature ceramics tiles

I have always been creatively aroused by nature. I am constantly in gaping awe at simple beauty: a shell, a flower, a feather, a sparrow (my favourite bird), lilac, the skeleton of a leaf, autumn foliage… Nature’s offering is abundant in sensate experiences and I have always been keen to somehow display and preserve that beauty. But not being exposed to opportunities to make that a reality in childhood, I have had to just be happy with memories.

I stumbled on Sally Bourne’s GORGEOUS tile work a while ago and have kept that magazine just for her work. Now in the throes of spring cleaning I decided to do away with bulky magazines and keep pages instead. So I have rediscovered her GORGEOUS work. Sally Bourne makes the best tiles around. Simply coloured and glazed in pastel colours, her tiles are impressed with items from nature: leaf, seahorse, cross section of pear, peas, duck, chilli, starfish.. fishbones…

I really like her work!
Sadly only available in UK.

The Woman behind the Blog

Welcome to my blog! It’s such a pleasure having you here.

What are you inspired by? I am inspired by beautiful and bright interiors, fabric, furniture, pinks, yellows, greens, chairs, china, trees, chocolate, peonies, hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, roses and rhubarb with cream.

Friends and family call me drey (pronounced 'dree'... short for Audrey) and I can often be found zipping through op-shops and vintage stores in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
