Little Blue Budgie

Mel Chambers

Mel is a self-taught artist living on the beautiful South coast of Cornwall. Inspired by the earth, ocean and animal kingdom her work portrays not only the beauty of the wild but also that which surrounds us daily, including the animals that share our everyday lives and are closest to our hearts.

Each tile is made individually by hand using ancient techniques dating back to Roman times to make inlayed patterned floors. The tiles are created by carving into the clay whilst it is still wet and then using coloured slip to bring the images and words to life making each tile unique.

Below are some examples of Mel's plaques;  

(Black) Hare

Authenticity is the freedom from the illusion of fear and alignment with the reality of love


(Red) Double Horse

Every love story is beautiful but ours is my favourite



When I am an old woman I shall wear purple


Double Hare

What we find in a soul mate is not something wild to tame but something wild to run with



The most sincere feelings are the hardest to be expressed by words



Love one another, but make nota bond of love, let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls


Tree & Birds

Nature has been for me as long as I can remember, a source of solace, inspiration, adventure and delight; a home, a teacher, a companion
