|Delft - House Basson - Brief|
We have spent all night on your website – what great work of art!!!!
We are looking for tiles for a “splash back” at the stove. Although your tiles are worth the selling price, it is way above our budget. We did get tiles and thought that we would be able to paint them – but what a disaster!
We got 100x100 shining white tiles from CTM as well as a dark blue 25x25 for the border. After seeing your product we thought that as a “consolation” we have to put a few of your delft 100x100 tiles in between.
Do you perhaps have a few, I think 9 will do delft 100x100 with people, farm animals or what you have available. It need not be the same at all. I was thinking that if you might have extras from previous orders at a good/sale price – that it would be great.
Thank you for your assistance in this regard.
We had some surplus tiles from a previous contract available - and these were supplied at a discounted price.
We had a look and decided we will take the ones on the right, without the circle.
Can you please let us have 10 of the double “figure/people” images.
Trust that you had a good weekend. Thank you for the feedback on the tiles. I really think we will be able to build a good looking 5x3 with the delft and then using the CTM around it.
You can invoice then as follows:
· 9 – Images (4 x2 -double images and 1 x golfer)
· 6 tiles, with only the corners (the same corners used as with the above tiles)
Thank you & regards
Thank you for the beautiful tiles, Lien collected them today but I think I must send them back. The CTM tiles are definitely not going to do justice to these tiles. We will go to CTM over the weekend and see what it looks like, but I doubt whether we will come right.
Trust that you still have 12 tiles with images and 36 with corners. If you do have, can you please quote me on it and reserve it until Sunday?
No, we did not find anything !!!!!! – we have to go your route.
12 x Images and 36 x corners.
Can we please have the figure images as follows:
Thanks for all the help, I’m sure this battle is going to be worth it.
"Die splashback met die Delft teels het werklik baie mooi uitgekom, ek dink dit was oorspronklik bedoel vir ons kombuis – ek is baie bly ons het deurgedruk en die hele een met julle teels gedoen."
What a battle to get the photos right, something went wrong with the program. I’ve managed to save it in a Word format. If you can’t use them, please let me know then I’ll try and reload the camera program. As you can see the pictures were taken in December already, just after they finished the kitchen.
What a search to get quality, startling and affordable “backsplash” tiles for a kitchen. After months and months of paging through kitchen and other interior decorating books and visits to tile shops, we decided to make a call to Slavin & Company and ask them if they could help us. They’ve given us the web info of someone who passed away some time ago but this led us to your website for the obvious reason – you had the solution.
What a pleasure it has been doing business with you – giving us the right advise, not pushing us into any direction, answering my e-mails very, very late at night, sending off parcels without any delay, bending backwards with your timing and your willingness to negotiate on the price.
It was such a pleasant and challenging exercise to build our own pattern – with each commissioning I guess you say that this is the best we’ve done – but ours must be the best ever!!! We get so many compliments that you should start paying advertising fees - to us.
I can keep on saying good and nice things about our end product and about Southern Art Ceramics Design – but my wife said I should not “gush” to much. Just a bit of advise to those who are busy renovating or building – do not waste time in searching for quality handmade tiles elsewhere – do yourself the favour and get the best from Southern Art Ceramics Design.
Thank you yet again for your great product and assistance.
Other Decorative Notes:
The client considered a blue frame as a border around the panel.
"The 50 x 50 will be to strong, but it is a cheaper alternative.
I have unglazed borders, and can do some in a kiln NEXT week - Price, currently at R27.50 each - if you are interested I shall provide some at R17.50, but your parcel will then dispatch late next week.
