Photo Tiles

Digital technology is used to produce specialist ceramic wall and swimming pool tiles. It combines ceramic colours and inkjet printing techniques to produce digital images which can be applied and then fired at very high temperatures onto glazed tiles.

The process does not have the normal limitations of specialist decoration (ie very high set-up costs) so is perfect for small production runs, bespoke tiles or murals such as personalised tiles or panels for kitchens, bathrooms, showers, swimming pools or schools.tian xiao cheng

Our skilled artwork techniques allow us to create numerous paint effects to turn photographs into paintings of many styles. Additionally we can convert childrens designs or paintings into tiles or feature panels.

The finished products are fully fade and scratch resistant and can even be used on external walls, in swimming pools or on power shower walls.

This gives the perfect opportunity to personalise your home or project.

The Olympic Spirit

To celebrate the connection of Much Wenlock with the founding of the modern Olympic Games through Dr William Penny Brookes, Craven Dunnill were commissioned to produce 2 stunning murals each 7m x 2m to adorn both sides of a feature sculptural wall outside the entrance of the recently re-built William Brookes School.

Liaising with a local artist and working in conjunction with Keir Construction, Shropshire Council, Meadow Arts and the School we produced a stunning and everlasting artwork utilising almost 750 specially produced ceramic tiles. The finished artwork is fully resistant to the worst of the UK weather and will be enjoyed by students, parents and the local community for many years to come.

 The special process used by Craven Dunnill is perfectly suited for all types of decorative ceramic wall and swimming pool tiles from individual tiles and small kitchen feature panels to large external wall murals or swimming pool linings and offers unlimited design opportunities and possibilities. The process is so flexible that we can even produce individual tiles to your own design.

Olympic Park

Olympic Park Mural

In 2010 we were approached by a well known artist to discuss the feasibility of producing an enormous artwork for the London 2012 olympic site.

The Artist, Clare Woods had been commissioned to produce two large scale of art to be featured on the outer boundary of the Olympic Park. Part of the site was the historic location of a ceramic tile factory so it was fitting that Clare contacted Craven Dunnill Jackfield and that the artworks were produced in ceramic tiles.

The artist liaised with us throughout the whole design and production process, once we had finalised and agreed the right blend of production processes the design was created by Clare Woods with these processes in mind. A mixture of standard tiles, plain colour special tiles and digital tiles were used which were all brought together with intricate water jet cutting to form the giant murals we see today and which will be enjoyed for generations to come.

The combination of processes not only allowed us to gain the maximum effect of each product type but also helped to keep costs down on these murals totalling over 750m2 and reaching heights of almost 7 metres tall.
