Consider the Mackerel: Tiles from Hooper & Shaw

Issue 35 · The Last Gasp of Summer · August 30, 2012

Artists Nicole Heidaripour and Daniel Scott left London for the seaside village of Port Isaac in Cornwall in 2008 and opened Hooper & Shaw, a gallery showcasing the work of local artists. We especially like the duo's hand-tumbled travertine tile, imprinted with images of local sealife.
