Full Fathom Five limited edition delft tiles

Full Fathom Five limited edition delft tiles

These are another 6 of the 18 limited edition delft tile designs I created exclusively for the Full Fathom Five exhibition (A Celebration of the Nautical World), at Hornseys' - the Gallery in Ripon, North Yorkshire and featuring the work of Jonny Hannah, Michael Kirkman, Ed Kluz, Emily Sutton and yours truly.

Available only from Hornseys' - the gallery, Ripon.

Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson. A National Hero and Norfolk's proudest son. "Kiss me Hardy"

A Mermaid or Siren. An early form, commonly found in Medieval church architecture, and better able than the one-tail type to seduce and drown the sailors they are famous for.

The Monkey's Paw, a clever nautical knot.

A Narwhal, 'Unicorn of the Sea'

Nelson's Blood. After the Battle of Trafalgar, Nelson's body was brought back to England, preserved in a barrel of brandy, which sailors call Nelson's Blood ever since.

On a Sailor's Grave No Roses Grow. For all those lost or buried at Sea.
