The ceramist Christine Jetten was approached as an advisor by the English architects Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates to find a producer for the tiles with the effect of 'battered bronze' for the entrance hall of an apartment complex in Mayfair, London. We carried out a short development process, the samples of which were approved by the architect. The hand-molded tiles have a fixed height and four different widths, so that in combination with the effect glaze, which has been generously variegated for this project, a particularly richly nuanced bronze-colored appearance is obtained. The tiling in the hall of the building runs upwards, with the numbering printed in the clay indicating the floors.
