architectural friezes

relief tiles

the collections

This on-going collection is conceived as a contemporary alternative to traditional ornamental plasterwork and external relief decoration.

Architectural friezes and decorative plasterwork have been used to embellish the facades of buildings and to introduce a relief decorative element to interiors since classical times. The motifs in these collections refer at times to imagery characteristic of the architecture of the past – from the Baroque to the Modernist movements – but distinctively and in contrast to traditional sculpted reliefs, the motifs are indented to the surface.

A further unique feature in these contemporary designs is that the imagery is often created from direct casting from real-life objects and materials.

The tiles and friezes are made bespoke so please email for details of how to commission kathy@kathydalwood.com
