Baptismal Font, St. Austell

Hand Decorated by Tiles of Stow Logo

The Catholic Church, Saint. Augustine of Hippo in St. Austell, commissioned us to create an underwater scene for their baptismal font.

The theme for the font was fish - a strong Christian symbol - and as the font was the step-in variety, the design incorporated fish swimming down the steps into the centre of the font.

Designing tiles for public areas is always a challenge, but we found this commission especially so, as it was an important centre piece to this parish.


Formats used in this commission:

152x152x6mm Special swimming pool tiles with ribbed step treads.

Any size white or cream could be used if needed.

Client's comments

The tiles arrived yesterday at 9am - very convenient. I opened the Impressions tiles and have propped them up on the work surface and every time I catch sight of them, I'm delighted
