The basis of the tiles is a combination of different clays and loam. Mixed in the workshop with quartz sand and fireclay, the mass is then pressed into the tile form and precisely reshaped by hand. Through a silkscreen process the basic material now acquires form. The glaze impresses rhythmical symbols in the tiles. Each of the raku tiles is worked by hand 36 times before it is used and laid in place. Unlike with industrial methods the handcrafted production allows a genuine response to individual requirements.

A complex of eighteenth-century barns is transformed into a series of residential spaces in which the refinement of the newly inserted elements, full-height glass walls and low white plaster partitions contrasts with the intricate configuration of the original timber frame. Rather than cut inappropriate openings into old walls, the interior is lit by large-scale sheets of glass which sit directly on the ground and make the original pitched roofs appear to float. Tilty Barn, Essex, England 1994-1995. John Pawson.
