Secret Garden – Mary lou Pittard Tiles

We have loved the work of Mary lou Pittard forever at Uccello Lane. Her Teapots and bowls, vases are bright and natural.

So she made us tiles for the Wisteria Colonnade and the walls of the Secret Garden – they are unique and perfect!
Capturing the love of birds and the color of the render blending into the native bush.
Mary-Lou (and Chris) came out and stood in the garden to get inspiration and then carefully left specific plans on where they were to be placed by Mick Harris.
Once the tiles were on the rendered walls we all knew we were indeed in a a “special” garden!

The panel for the Wisteria Colonnade was to be the feature – just Wisteria on the walls and roof and tiles on the ground. When we first saw it at Mary-lou’s studio it was breath taking – once in place it took on the dimension we wanted – it looked like it had always been there.
The bricks that capped the walls were old and crumbly, irregular shapes but perfect for the job. They featured around both doors and needed lots of skill to lay.
The door to the Secret Garden – the handle is from Steptoes in Preston.
