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;
