Tiles & Trims Provides Exceptional Support to Ceramic Artist Carrie Reichardt

Buckley-based tiling tool supplier Tiles & Trims extended their expertise to artist Carrie Reichardt as she prepared a piece for the British Ceramics Biennial.

Carrie faced a tight deadline to transform a Ford Zodiac (donated by Fat Boy Slim) into a mosaic art piece, featuring strobe lighting, music, and video interviews. Her creation celebrated UK rave culture and the birthplace of acid house, particularly Shelley’s nightclub in Longton. The British Ceramics Biennial, running from September 23 to November 5 in Stoke-on-Trent, showcased various exhibitions, installations, and events celebrating the creative potential of clay.

Carrie, with her background in Fine Art and a career spanning various media, approached Tiles & Trims for guidance on cutting china plates for her project. She needed a diamond cutting disc that would deliver a clean, crisp finish, and the team at Tiles & Trims gladly provided their expertise.

David Brundell, [job title] at Tiles & Trims, shared,

“Carrie called us to ask what we recommend when cutting china plates and naturally, we were intrigued. We recommended the Montolit Perfetto 250mm Diamond Blade and Carrie placed her order straightaway. We’re really pleased the diamond cutting disc worked and has made cutting china plates easier for Carrie and the team.”

He added “It was really humbling that Carrie chose to contact us for a recommendation and it shows that the team at Tiles and Trim can really help in any situation. It’s not often we get asked what’s the best Cutting disc to cut Duchess Bone China Plates and Pill Box Lids so it was good to know we helped!”

Carrie’s transformed car is now proudly displayed at the British Ceramics Biennial.

Carrie expressed her satisfaction with the recommended cutting disc: “I already had a wet saw which I used but the disc I had used to chip all the china so I asked the team at Tiles & Trims what they would recommend to cut ceramic and they suggested I used the Montolit Perfetto. I couldn’t agree more, it cuts through bone china like butter! It’ll be useful for me going forward as I need to cut ceramics regularly and I’ve never found a disc that works that well, so this is great.”

The exhibition is available for visitation at All Saints Church in Hanley until November 5.
