The world of terracotta glaze options for today's terracotta rainscreen facades.
Long gone is the question, "What glaze RAL colour do you want and is it to
be gloss or matt". "Fusion Glazes" are best defined as a Macbeth's cauldron
of ingredients that when combined produce glaze colours and effects that are
simply stunning with a true depth, lustre and complexity that brings real life
and soul to a project. Whilst deep routed and historic knowledge of glaze
composition is the basis for project specific glaze development it is the love
of what's possible that drives us on. It has taken James & Taylor almost
5 years to begin to crack this nut but we are now beginning to realise truly
wonderful projects like Camden Lock Market (AHMM architects) and
Newington Causeway (SPPARC architects) where fusion glazed terracotta
is the jewel in these project's crowns. There's truly something wonderful
about this "fusion glaze" journey that goes way beyond commercial return.
It's doing something that stirs our creative juices and gives us inspiration.
