Artists are wanted by Tiled Space. Tiled Space is a Stoke-on-Trent company which manufactures bespoke ceramic tiles. This has led them into many different areas, including community arts projects, supplies to tile shops and distributors, and services for architects and interior designers. They are now considering the development of a range of Aga panels for kitchen splash-backs, for sale through independent tile shops and bespoke kitchen companies. For this they are asking artists to submit their designs, with a view to compile a portfolio of suitable artists. Tiled Space hope to find designers who cover a range of different styles and themes, but who can work to their specific need for custom-made panels and splash-backs. For more information, or to apply, please send an artist’s statement and up to 5 .jpg images to Mark Wood at:  mark@tiledspace.com
