Ceramic Artist Sandy Brown’s Exceptional Result
Tudor Roof Tiles is pleased to acclaim the fantastic ceramic temple, designed, built and exhibited by world-renowned artist Sandy Brown.
Not only was this made entirely by hand, Sandy created the worlds largest single piece ceramic sculpture within a 12 month time-frame.
The 2,183 roof tiles were supplied by Tudor to Sandy’s bespoke size and texture.
These, along with the 3,017 wall and floor tiles were hand painted with glaze, then attached to the handmade framework.
Exhibited in Sotherby’s ‘Beyond limits’ at Chatsworth House, the Temple is acknowledged as making a profound impact on contemporary ceramics.
Well done Sandy !!

Tudor Roof Tiles Help the Environment
November 30th 2015
Work starts today to install 793 solar panels on the factory roof.
The overall project has been 5 months in the planning stages, but now the preparations are complete.
We look forward to publishing ongoing news on our blog, plus on Facebook and Twitter.
During the past few years, the sourcing of reclaimed, second-hand peg tiles has become increasingly difficult.
This shortage of supply has enabled some manufacturers to raise prices dramatically.
3 years ago, Tudor Roof Tiles decided to ‘buck the trend’ by actually reducing the price of new Kent peg tiles.
The new price allowed property restorers to use genuine handmade peg tiles to return their roofs to former glory.
This proved to be well received by property restorers and conservationists alike, therefore Tudor Roof Tiles will continue to keep the peg tile prices low for the foreseeable future.
