About

Decorative hand painted tiles from rural West Wales.

Hello, we are Carlo & Ed - wife and husband. We set Reptile up in 1988 and have made our living from making tiles and ceramics ever since. We mostly work to commission, but also sell through shops and galleries in Wales, and at various shows and exhibitions.
We met at art college and both studied Fine Art. We discovered the delights of ceramics through night classes in the mid 80s, and became drawn in particular to tiles after a couple of visits to Portugal.
All of our work is handmade by us in our studio in beautiful rural West Wales.
Our tiles are made with white earthenware clay, and after bisque firing they are dipped in tin glaze and then painted with oxides and stains. They are then fired to 1060ºC, where the colour becomes part of the glaze. This is a technique perfected by the Persians 12 centuries ago, and you can see from their ceramics that the colours never fade.
Our tiles are suitable for walls anywhere in the home. They can be treated for outside installation.
You can find more info about us on our website, or message us directly if you have any questions. We welcome bespoke commissions large and small from anywhere in the world.
