At Digital Ceramics Custom Tiles, we work closely with designers, architects and artists. We have a great relationship with renowned artist and designer Morag Myerscough and in 2019 completed an exciting and vibrant project with her in London’s Broadgate.
Morag Myerscough was commissioned by the British Land PLC to design a structural art installation that incorporates a cafe. The work is called ‘Atoll’ and is the centrepiece in the newly created public space No.1 Finsbury Avenue, Broadgate London by architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris Architects. The structure is tiled from top to bottom and we were commissioned to print and cut the tiles as well as oversee the installation of the tiles.
We worked with Morag to create large format and brightly coloured porcelain mosaics that clad the complete structure.
The task came with its challenges which we were able to meet head on, including the creation of bright bold ceramic colours. Typically, achieving such bright colours is difficult because ceramic pigments in their natural state are very earthy. However, we were able to find a colour palette Morag was happy with. We then screen printed and kiln fired the tiles for a permanent finish. We then waterjet cut each individual tile and mapped out the artwork to the structure by labelling each individual tile.
The unveiling of this project was given a great write up in Dezeen which you can read here for more information.
