Following on from the excitement of meeting Ptolemy Mann at the Surface Design Show on Thursday I launched myself into the sea of textured concrete, LED lights and laminated wood. At a quick glance this is all the SDS has to offer. How wrong!
On closer inspection you find yourself reaching out to touch the textured panels, wave-like curves of ceramics and fur encased in resin. More on that soon….
It was whilst I was stroking some beautifully speckled enamel that I met a charming gentleman who had traveled from the Isle of Wight for the show.
Andy Thearle from A J Wells happily talked me through the possibilities of vitreous enamel as an artistic, surface design material.
