Made a Mano

My client and I went to Tom Dixon's Portobello Dock this morning, to check out Made a Mano, a fantastic Danish/Italian Tile company (if you can call it that! I call it art!).  

We were really blown away by the colours and textures of the lava stone tiles (sourced from Mount Etna, don't you know!) and ceramic tiles.  Similar to PyroLave, but A LOT more chic.  We were even lucky enough to meet the owner of the company, who was over from Copenhagen, Nanaki, who explained the different glazes to us.  

The coloured enamel pieces are stunning, as are the natural lava stone with pattern.  We popped upstairs to the Dock Kitchen (smelled so good, wish we could have stayed for lunch) to see the stone in use as tiles and tabletops. 

And a random Julian Opie on the terrace.. just to round things off!
