A YOUNG entrepreneur has an ambition to transform a small handmade tile business into a top brand.

Motif Tiles owner Harry Appleyard, 22, designs and makes handmade products for the home in a lakeside workshop in Coniston.

The tiles, in non-conventional shapes, are made from British clay and other materials.

Mr Appleyard said: “We enable customers to create a completely unique installation. By using our website they can visualise what their tiles would look like.”

Working with a local blacksmith, Motif also produces a range of tile- topped tables.

Mr Appleyard added: “Motif is set up for direct sales to the general public, with deliveries available nationally.”
