Tiles & Trims Provides Exceptional Support to Ceramics Artist Carrie Reichardt

Tiling tool supplier Tiles & Trims, based in Buckley, offered invaluable assistance to artist Carrie Reichardt as she prepared an artwork for the British Ceramics Biennial.

Carrie had a tight deadline to transform a Ford Zodiac, generously donated by Fat Boy Slim, into a mosaic art piece. Her creation was set to feature strobe lighting, music, and video interviews, celebrating UK rave culture and the birthplace of acid house, with a particular focus on Shelley’s nightclub in Longton. The piece was scheduled to be displayed at this year’s British Ceramics Biennial, taking place from September 23 to November 5 in Stoke-on-Trent, showcasing various exhibitions, installations, and events that celebrate the creative potential of clay for storytelling, playfulness, risk-taking, and activism.

Carrie, with a First Class degree in Fine Art and a versatile career spanning various media, including film, performance, and sculpture, needed specific tools for her project. She reached out to Tiles & Trims for expertise in selecting the right diamond cutting disc that would provide a clean and crisp finish for her mosaic work.

David Brundell, a representative at Tiles & Trims, stated, “Carrie called us to ask what we recommend when cutting china plates and naturally, we were intrigued. We recommended the Montolit Perfetto 250mm Diamond Blade and Carrie placed her order straightaway. We’re really pleased the diamond cutting disc worked and has made cutting china plates easier for Carrie and the team.”

He further added “It was really humbling that Carrie chose to contact us for a recommendation and it shows that the team at Tiles and Trim can really help in any situation. It’s not often we get asked what’s the best Cutting disc to cut Duchess Bone China Plates and Pill Box Lids so it was good to know we helped!”
Thanks to the guidance from Tiles & Trims, Carrie successfully completed her project, and the mosaic-adorned car is now proudly on display at the British Ceramics Biennial.

Carrie expressed her satisfaction, saying, “I already had a wet saw which I used but the disc I had used to chip all the china so I asked the team at Tiles & Trims what they would recommend to cut ceramic and they suggested I used the Montolit Perfetto. I couldn’t agree more, it cuts through bone china like butter! It’ll be useful for me going forward as I need to cut ceramics regularly and I’ve never found a disc that works that well, so this is great.”

The exhibition can be visited at All Saints Church in Hanley until November 5. You can watch a short film about the artwork created by Darren Washington from One One Six here: https://www.instagram.com/p/CxC7JP1IABk/
