Flicking through this week’s Country Life magazine, I found an interesting article entitled “Best in Class – 70 brilliant objects you should own”. Nestling between hair brushes by Kent and hip flasks by Ettinger are handmade tiles by Craven Dunnill Jackfield, as seen in “London’s Garrick Club” and the Central Lobby of the Palace of Westminster. It is very heartening to see encaustic and geometric floor tiles lauded in this way, and brings back fond memories of our recent craft visit in September. We were there to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Craven Dunnill & Co on a visit organised by Chairman of the Craft Committee David White in association with Liverymen Adrian Blundell and Simon Howell of Craven Dunnill, which included a visit to the Jackfield tile museum and the John Scott collection.
