Home Intro The Tiles Gallery Enquiries

These tiles were inspired by the notes my mother wrote when she was suffering from Alzheimer's.

The evident struggle to deal with her failing memory and the child like notation are poignant, as is her creative adaptation of her native Polish to write English. Reading my mother's notes was an antivenin to coping with her increasingly difficult behaviour.

The notes have been traced onto hand made tiles, which have been dipped in white glaze, and then
hand painted in cobalt.
