Baptismal Font, St. Austell

The Catholic Church, Saint. Augustine of Hippo in St. Austell, commissioned us to create an underwater tiles 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 center of the font.

Designing tiles for public areas is always a challenge, but we found this commission especially so, as it was an important center piece to this parish. The font and sculpture were designed and made by the sculptor, David John. We were given free reign to design the fish and water tiles. The combination of design skills worked very well!
