In 2010 we were approached by a well known artist to discuss the feasibility of producing an enormous artwork for the London 2012 Olympic site.
The artist, Clare Woods had been commissioned to produce 2 large scale pieces of art to be featured on the outer boundary of the Olympic Park. Part of the site was the historic location of a ceramic tile factory so it was fitting that Clare contacted Craven Dunnill Jackfield and that the artworks were produced in ceramic tiles.
The artist liaised with us throughout the whole design and production process, once we had finalised and agreed the right blend of production processes the design was created by Clare Woods with these processes in mind. A mixture of standard tiles, plain colour special tiles & digital tiles were used which were all bought together with intricate water jet cutting to form the giant murals we see today and which will be enjoyed for generations to come.
The combination of processes not only allowed us to gain the maximum effect of each product type but also helped to keep costs down on these murals totalling over 750m2 and reaching heights of almost 7m tall.
