Tiles & Trims Provides Valuable Support to Ceramics Artist Carrie Reichardt

Tiles & Trims, a tiling tool supplier based in Buckley, extended their expertise to artist Carrie Reichardt as she prepared an artwork for the British Ceramics Biennial.

With a tight deadline, Carrie had one month to complete her piece for the British Ceramics Biennial’s Award exhibition, which took place from September 23 to November 5 in Stoke-on-Trent. The event featured various exhibitions, installations, and events celebrating the creative potential of clay in storytelling, playfulness, risk-taking, and activism.

Carrie’s project involved transforming a Ford Zodiac (donated by Fat Boy Slim) into a mosaic art piece with strobe lighting, music, and video interviews. Her artwork celebrated UK rave culture and the birthplace of acid house, specifically focusing on Shelley’s nightclub in Longton.

Having earned a First Class degree in Fine Art and boasting a career spanning various media, including film, performance, and sculpture, Carrie is no stranger to using tools like wet saws for cutting tiles and china plates. For this particular project, she needed a diamond cutting disc that would provide a clean and precise finish. The team at Tiles & Trims was eager to offer their guidance on selecting the most suitable tool for the job.

David Brundell, [job title] at Tiles and Trims, shared, “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!”

The finished car artwork is now proudly displayed at the British Ceramics Biennial.

Carrie expressed her satisfaction with the tool, 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 is open for visitors at All Saints Church in Hanley until November 5. You can view a short film about the artwork, created by Darren Washington from One One Six here: https://www.instagram.com/p/CxC7JP1IABk/
