Tile panel: Trikeri, fish and octopus
ceramic tiles by Susan and Douglas Dalgleish, Morningside, Edinburgh
This frostfroof 75cm x 60cm tile-panel was made for the exterior wall of a house in Trikeri, Greece. It is a site-specific expression of the homeowner's appreciation of local maritime traditions.

Typical Trikeri fishing boats float in front of a skyline showing local landmarks. The marine life of the sea below is balanced by mythological figures included in the starry heavens above.

Handpainted in ceramic onglaze colours.
