Faye Toogood The Cloakroom V & A

Natural Stone Projects is delighted to be collaborating with Faye Toogood, http://fayetoogood.com on The Cloakroom project at London Design Festival 2015 at the V&A Museum London. The festival runs from 19-27th September and this installation invites visitors to don one of  Toogoods hand made coats and use a hand drawn map to navigate the museum and find 10 coats , each created in a material representing a traditional craft.

Natural Stone Projects  hand made English Terracotta collection was selected for the Potters section. A figurative coat was assembled  by the Toogood studio from fragments of the deep red and brown tiles to echo the shape of the coat and of the original kilns.  The local clays have been used for over a thousand years to create terracotta  products and take on a  new creative guise at the Museum.

As well as the dark red and deep brown, a lighter colour range is available as seen below,to provide a medieval tapestry  like colour selection. Alternative traditional shapes are also avialable. Despite the ancient origins, these tiles with their coarse and slightly open texture have a raw contemporary appeal. A range of hand made clay wall tiles in traditional engobe style designs and delicate glazes are available to special order.
