Zero to Climate Hero 5-week challenge! Week One 😁
Although my business is built on the foundation of the Permaculture principles of Earth Care, Fair Share and People Care there is always more that can be done so I've signed up for the Zero to Climate Hero 5-week challenge! with the WWF.
Week One - REUSE & UPCYCLE
BEST HAND CRAFTED TILE COMPANY 2021
I am ecstatic to be able to tell you that Alchemy Tiles has been announced winner of the Southern Enterprise Awards for “best hand-crafted tile company” for the second year in a row.
It is such an honour to be awarded this accolade again after a tough couple of years for everyone working in the creative sector. The pandemic meant many creatives had to make some big changes to the way they work, and I have been no exception.
Made in Cornwall Winner
It was with very unexpected but absolute delight that I was awarded winner of the Made in Cornwall Member of the Year 2021!!!
I've been a proud member of the Made In Cornwall Scheme since 2016 which involves a rigorous examination by Trading Standards to ensure my creations are authentically Cornish from start to finish
Honour Thy Mother
After celebrating a truly powerful International Women's Day the energy naturally flows into Mothers Day and the theme of honouring continues. As Mother Earth begins to emerge from her winter slumber we begin to feel her energy rising in the sap and the feeling of Spring around us.
As the earths fertility begins to blossom we give thanks to the beautiful mothers in our lives who nurture and care for us and love us unconditionally in their own magical way.
For some of us this time can be difficult as we remember the wonderful mothers and grandmothers we have lost and how we crave to be held in their embrace just one more time. So let their love shine on in you and share what you loved about them most.
Honour Thy Soul Sister - International Women's Day
International Women's Day on Monday 8th March is a day close to my heart. An honouring of women across the globe regardless of race, colour or creed. It is a universal love and thanks for all that they do and so often unseen, unspoken, unrecognised or acknowledged.
Southern Enterprise Award 2020
Alchemy Tiles: proud winner of the SME Southern Enterprise Awards for extensive expertise and skills, dedication to customer service and client satisfaction with an on-going commitment to excellence and innovation. It was with absolute delight and deep humility that I received the Best Hand Crafted Tile Company Award 2020. All new businesses take time to get off the ground, especially when you're a soul trader, but this award really gave me huge confirmation that all the dedicated hours and hard work were paying off, especially during a time when the world was dealing with so much adversity with COVID.
To be recognised on a national level for something I am deeply passionate about, from the creation to the end customer, was indeed a feather in my cap. Keeping this ancient tradition and craft alive and taking it to new heights is what gets me out of bed in the mornings and creating beautiful pieces and bespoke interiors is what makes my heart sing.
So thank you, one and all, who have supported my work, my journey, my craft, my passion. Without you it would not be possible and I am only spurred on to create to even higher levels of wonder.
Welcome to Alchemy Tiles
Hand carved from the heart...
Welcome the new website for Alchemy Tiles! I'm really excited to be sharing my work with you and hope you find something inspiring among these pages. As my work has developed over the last 8 years it has reached a point where Alchemy Tiles needed its own space and the new website is designed not only to showcase my work but also to make it easier for online purchases as we move into a highly digital age.
As all bar two of my shows were cancelled this year and as more and more people are now buying online due to COVID, it made sense to upgrade and make the experience more user friendly. I am still getting used to the new platform so please bear with me and if you have any feedback I'd be genuinely grateful for it.
