Fabulous Aboriginal fabrics coming to Bay Gallery Home soon

Bay Gallery Home is working hard on creating 'Songlines' our first collection of fabrics based on paintings by artists we proudly represent.  We have developed the world's first Aboriginal velvets available in three colours with slightly differing depictions of the Goanna Dreaming (Warnu Jukurrpa) - essentially a love story set in the Central Desert of Australia.  In keeping with our 'design with origin' ethos we have been faithful to the original artwork in the design work thereby protecting the Dreamtime story and the intent of the artist.  Keep an eye on the website over the next month or so as beautiful tableware, blinds and cushions will be amongst our first offerings.

Australia's MacDonnell Ranges feature in our artwork and wallpaper

The MacDonnell Ranges run 664km across the Northern Territory, Australia through the Aboriginal countries and communities we represent.  The Ranges are integral to their life and Dreamtime stories.  

The Aboriginals (the Arrernte mob) believe three giant caterpillars: Yeperenye, Ntyarlke and Utnerrengatye created the stunning ranges after emerging from of an escarpment in Mparntwe or Alice Springs.  Rock art exists at Emily Gap near Alice Springs which tells the story of the caterpillars emergence and bitter fight with the Irlperenye or giant stink bug which killed the caterpillars off.

Caterpillar remains made rock formations and gaps in the ranges.  Surviving Yeperenye caterpillars made the rivers and the trees and in some Aboriginal Dreamtime stories the Caterpillar dreaming resides underneath the eucalyptus trees.

The McDonnell Ranges and the flora living on them is often depicted in the Aboriginal artwork and wallpapers we sell.  The Country where they sit is the embodiment of the Aboriginal people who have been custodians of the land for at least 40,000 years.

Celebrating British Ceramic Tiles in Interiors

The use of Ceramic Tiles in homes and architecture is as ancient as universal and diverse, which is why this April 2017 saw the launch of Britain's first National Tile Week– "a celebration of tiles, aiming to educate consumers on the quality and versatility of tiles and how they can be used throughout the home."

Our award-winning My Country Aboriginal Art Ceramic Wall Tiles are testament to the expertise of the British Ceramic Tile industry, as it is thanks to our collaboration with Johnson Tiles that we were able to successfully reproduce the intricate detailing and vibrant character of this Art for the very first time in design history.

We turned to Johnson Tiles after hearing about their specialist Artile service through the British Museum. Using state of the art techniques, Artile painstakingly reproduces any illustration, drawing or picture onto a tile with no loss of detail or colour.

The quality of the reproduction was especially crucial to this enterprise, given that in Australian Aboriginal Art every dot, line, abstract & figurative representation and choice of colour has special meaning and spiritual importance to the Aboriginal people. This interior collection provides a window into a world that many have still not yet had the privilege to see or encounter.

Johnson Tile were a delight to work with, taking on the challenge with dedication, enthusiasm and sensitivity for the nature of our commission — "we weren’t just recapturing an image but a culture, a history, and all of its folklore and traditions. Implementing traditional lithography techniques combined with our state of the art technology and high-res scanning process, we were able to accurately match every detail and colour of Sarah and Geraldine’s paintings."

Tiles, especially ceramic tiles have as many functional advantages as different styles.  The ancient Greeks were prolific tile users, designing tile motifs inspired by abstracted natural forms, developing stylistic standards that still today serve as reference points. Tiles are foremost durable: tough, water-resistant, heat-reflective and help regulate ambient temperature. Decoratively, the breadth and width of contemporary tile designs make it one of the greatest creative assets in interiors.

National Tile Week is an initiative of the Devon-based company British Ceramic Tiles, who turned to interior designer Julia Kendell, whose passion for emotionally-connected design inspired her successful TV work on  DIY SOS and 60 Minute Makeover, inspiring her nickname as 'the Nigella of DIY'. Here are some of her tips and advice on working with tiles:

"I’m a huge advocate of tiles as they are virtually indestructible and brilliantly practical in the home. Hygienic and easy to clean, they will take all the knocks that day–to-day life can throw at them, making them a superior surface material. National Tile Week is a great opportunity to focus on and celebrate tiles in all their colourful glory! It’s a great way to inspire creativity and illustrate the many ways they can be used around the home to create beautiful and unique interiors...

Far from limited to just walls and floors, tiles can be used around the home to create colour and textural interest where you might not expect to find it. Try using them to frame an opening through an open-plan area, or to add a pop of colour to alcoves or chimney breasts – you’ll love the way they look! Added to old furniture they’ll give it new life, along with a one-of-a-kind finish you can’t buy in the shops...

Ceramic tiles are hardy, easy to install and need very little upkeep. They’re also available in a wide range of sizes, prints and finishes, making them a good value, versatile option."

Her top-tips blog is a great practical guide if you are thinking of shopping for tiles.

Designing with Art

 Starting with  Water Dreaming,  by Shorty Jangala Robertson.

Starting with Water Dreaming, by Shorty Jangala Robertson.

This Ngapa Jukurrpa, or Water Dreaming is the work of a master of colour field abstraction: Shorty Jangala Robertson. Described as a stetson-wearing superstar, he didn’t start painting until he was quite elderly.  After a life of struggle and trauma involving being hunted by “white fella” during the Coniston massacre, and being separated from his mother during WW2, Shorty became a sought after world class artist.  His paintings are found in collections around the world, and notably in  the New South Wallers Art Gallery.

 The Rug Makers: dedicated to their craft! Here they painstakingly colour match the artist's palette...

The technical expertise of our collaborators is key to our pioneering core range of wallpapers, ceramics wall tiles & rugs, and our made to order service.

My Country is unique in translating authentic Central Australian Aboriginal artwork into interior surfaces. Due to the meaning and spiritual importance of every element in the artworks, we make sure to enlist state of the art techniques to preserve the detailed quality of each piece.

Translating the quality of the artists' brushstrokes and character, and in particular their sophisticated use of colour across mediums posed a real technical challenge, to which our collaborators masterfully rose!

Mina Mina Dreamtime Rug, 100 % wool, hand knotted.

The wonderful throbbing, pulsating and constantly moving work of Pauline Nangala Gallagher is influenced by a semi-blindness in one eye. Whilst this might be a disadvantage in day to day life, it gives her a wholly unique perspective.  Pauline’s country is Pikilyi (Vaughan Springs), a sacred water hole  350 km north-west of Alice Springs.  Canvases and paints have been dropped to this remote location since 2005.  Pauline paints her stories using a huge array of colours influenced by the colours of her country.

Bay Gallery Home offers bespoke, made to order rugs from our vast collection of authentic Australian Aboriginal Artworks recounting the Aboriginal Dreamtime. 

My Country rugs are hand-knotted and available in wool, bamboo silk, Chinese silk or art viscose silk. They can be made to any size, colours may be altered, though the design must stay the same.  

Our rugs are manufactured through the ‘GoodWeave’ programme and distributed from the UK.
