 Brighton based Anna Tilson has been cracking crockery for more than10 years!


Formally a successful textile designer (she graduated from St. Martin’s School of Art in the 80’s), she has now turned her hand to the exciting art of ‘Pique Assiette’- making mosaics from pieces of crockery.

Each piece of her mosaic work is inspired and informed by the materials she sources.

Only carefully selected vintage crockery is used to bring a new quirky slant to mosaic making. Turning old discarded plates and cups left at the back of the cupboard, into new precious objects. Items that were once in everyday use are transformed and given a new lease of life.

Anna Tilson’s work is inspired by a combination of a Victorian boudoir and a 1930’s tea room – nostalgic and whimsical.

All her pieces are original one-off designs and the range includes beautiful mirrors and fancy wall flowers.

The mirrors would make a perfect wedding gift to adorn any married couple’s new home. All items can be personalized with names and dates stenciled in gold around the outside edges of the mirrors.
