Specialist projects demand specialist knowledge. At Craven Dunnill Jackfield we offer a full consultation service with our technical and ceramic experts, who are able to carry out site surveys as required.
As part of this service, the team are able to take moulds of originial tiles, re-model tile profiles where required, and offer technical advice and support throughout the process. This is particularly relevant to those projects requiring the manufacture of specialist tiles to ensure heritage and conservation issues are observed.
Our expertise in product matching is simply unrivalled. With production facilities set up to cater for specialist restoration projects, including colour matched glazes, moulded fittings and cappings, we take great pride in the faithful manufacture of period style tiles. These skills are illustrated in the range of high profile restoration projects that the company has completed.
Complying with the strict requirements of heritage bodies, often working closely with architects, conservators and organisations such as the National Trust and English Heritage, Craven Dunnill Jackfield’s facilities and colour matching service ensures that original wall and floor tiles will be faithfully restored to their former glory.
Craven Dunnill Jackfield is increasingly using the skills of the past to create ceramics for the future. Our craftmanship allows us to offer a completely customised design service, creating hand-made and hand-crafted specialist ceramics of unrivalled quality, design, and style.
Our unique production methods can be employed to achieve an infinite variety of designs and effects where the only limitation is the designer’s imagination. Whether the design is 3-dimensional acoustic tiles, or contemporary art-inspired wall tile panels, our skilled team of artisans relish the challenge of any such project.
We offer a bespoke CAD and Design service. Our experienced in-house design team can produce visualisations of your wall or floor designs. Our team also create detailed installation layout plans and elevations for larger, more complex projects.
CAD drawings can be received in a multitude of formats from both CAD and Illustrator systems or alternatively the space can be re-created from site measurements or scaled plans.
This in-house service gives our clients the peace of mind that their designs or schemes are understood, detailed and transposed from initial concept through to final installation.
Ceramics have been used for decorative murals for many centuries due to the inherent properties of the finished product. However technological advances in tile decoration and tile cutting have expanded the options available to an artist or designer wanting to commission a ceramic mural.
Craven Dunnill Jackfield offer a comprehensive mural design service from conception to installation. We are experts in understanding what is achievable and applying our suite of skills and processes to realise the aspirations of a client, to any given brief. Using a variety of processes including hand painting, water-jet cutting, screen printing, and digital transfer decoration, we have been recognised as best in class in this area.
Our unique set of skills and production processes can also be applied to the creation of customised commissions for either internal or external application. Using our unrivalled expertise in ceramic production, highly complex designs and artwork can be produced onto a colourfast water resistant ceramic medium, and the results processed to be resistant to frost, and with UV and fade resistant properties also.
