Iris makes beautiful hand made tiles decorated by hand that include poetry. Her small tiles allow space for a few words, her garden pieces allow for whole paragraphs and the walls a whole poem. When using earthenware she rolls the clay into slabs and whilst soft scratches out the design and fills the hollow spaces with coloured liquid clay. This is called inlay. Then the tiles are glazed with a transparent glaze. The outdoor tiles have to be frost resistant, so for that reason stoneware clay and matt glazes are used.

Iris makes fountains, footpath slabs and risers for garden stairs, to commission. She also takes commissions for kitchens and bathrooms where a poem can trail along the work surface.
