The British Artists and Crafts movement from Craven Dunnill Jackfield and Brian Clarke

The art installation at Beaverbrook Spa by Craven Dunnill Jackfield, and British artist Brian Clarke, is a magical meeting of British, traditional manufacturing, craftsmanship, and artistry.

Dating back to 1866, the quintessentially English, Beaverbrook Estate is a charming retreat overlooking the Surrey Hills.  The beautiful art installation encompasses a vibrant and uplifting flower-theme with a mix of stained-glass panels and skylights, as well as ceramic tiles and mosaics.  The floor-to-ceiling grid of ceramic tiles is decorated with a series of ceramic poppies running throughout the overall scheme.

Originally conceptualised as watercolours, the hand-made ceramic poppies by Craven Dunnill Jackfield, were made to respond to the rich light of the stained-glass skylights.  The same metal oxides used in the stained glass were used by Craven Dunnill Jackfield for the tiles, creating a vivid and luminous experience for visitors.

To create the tiles, Craven Dunnill Jackfield used a mixture of processes from casting to glaze application.
