Artwork puts the finishing touches on the Royal Edinburgh Hospital

Artist Frances Priest worked with tile manufacturer Craven Dunnill Jackfield to create a decorative tiled corridor, inspired by two Victorian tiled stairwells in Craig House, the former site of the hospital. The installation stretches 14m along a light-infused entrance way, with the glaze palette of the tiles changing from ochre-yellow to teal, with dramatic accents of deep blue and pink, providing a sense of movement. The pattern has no repeats and few straight edges, giving the feeling that there is always something new to discover within the design, which contains some 2,800 individual tiles.
