Tonight I will be talking about 24 Savile Row in London which was designed by @eprarchitects and I created the facade working with @richmillerpots of @froyletiles⁠ ⁠ 6.30-8pm⁠ Building Centre⁠ 26 Store Street⁠ London⁠ WC1E 7BT⁠ ⁠ The building is clad 10,000 bespoke hand glazed ceramic tiles and positioned on a decorative sand-cast bronze plinth. A crystalline glaze – a challenging production method where textured crystals are encouraged to develop in the firing process – was chosen which means no two tiles are exactly the same.⁠ An extensive testing period in collaboration with @richmillerpots of @froyletiles was undertaken to ensure the glaze results formed in the potter’s studio could be replicated architecturally. ⁠ ⁠ Situated in the Mayfair Conservation Area, the building attained a BREEAM Excellent rating.⁠ ⁠ Find out more about the tiles, design and production process tonight with myself, Stephen Pey of EPR and Rich Miller ⁠ This talk is part of #HandHeldToSuperScale at @thebuildingcentre ⁠ Sponsored by @bostonvalleyterracotta and supported by @arupgroup, @darwenterracotta, @nbk_terracotta and #Szerelmey.⁠ ⁠ #ceramics #architecture #materials ⁠ #tiles #builtenvironment⁠ #KateMalone #RichMiller #EPR⁠

It’s been a few years since my last open days.⁠ ⁠ I shall be holding my open days this year on 7th /8th December ⁠from 10am till 6pm at the newer building along the mews (number 8 Culford Mews)from the old Balls Pond Studio (8b Culford Mews)… we still have an oven – so we can bake the legendary mince pies for visitors.⁠ Welcome, Welcome, Welcome.⁠ ⁠ For those makers interested in the technical aspects of ceramics, I’ll be happy to chat in my compact studio with the glaze archive – “access all areas – no secrets”. ⁠ ⁠ I will have a new edition of my UK produced bone china mugs, some giclee prints of my paintings, some posters and new very small pieces especially made for the weekend. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ Parallel with my own Open Day’s in the upstairs part of the old Balls Pond Studio, five of my studio team: @miray_mehmet_fontanelli⁠ @annabarlowceramics @erikaalbrechtceramics @saewon_art & @schoemanceramics are going to show their own ceramics. ⁠ ⁠ Two very good reasons to plan a visit to Culford Mews #London, N1 4DX ⁠ ⁠ Photo: @dan_fontanelli⁠ ⁠ #KateMalone #OpenStudio #katemaloneceramics #welcome #mincepies ⁠ #londonopenstudios #ceramicstudioopendays⁠ #londonceramics #ceramicsinlondon #ceramics ⁠ #whatsonlondon #whattodoinlondon #whatsoninlondon⁠ ⁠ @thecreativecalendar @craftscouncil @ceramicreview @hackneymagazine
