Rachel Howarth creates eye-catching Aluminium Art

Rachel Howarth’s debut range showcases an eye-catching selection of Aluminium Art. With colour at the forefront, the boundaries of digital printing have been pushed to achieve smooth and beautiful blends. Looking at details within modern and geometric architecture, and in particular the sky reflected within the structures, the prints reflect complex linear patterns. Mixing Rachel’s signature blues with a metallic surface provides new depth to the on-trend hue. The aluminium shines and catches the light at different angles to provide a contemporary statement for interiors.

Versa takes a graphic approach to grouting

Underpinned by an ethos of British design and manufacturing, the trailblazing new product – developed by the founder of A White Workshop – is produced by leading UK tile manufacturer Johnson Tiles at its factory in Stoke-on-Trent.
