With layered feathery soft grey tones, a smattering of yellow hues, warm ochre flecks, black and blizzard white, it’s hard to imagine that Heron came from humble beginnings. But, in fact, it was created from the staple kitchen fixtures we use every day.
Would-be discarded white goods make up the foundations of the Heron mix, bringing a unique aesthetic and colour palette that is less reminiscent of its original material make-up and more alike the appearance of the statuesque bird after which it was named.

We make up batches of Heron material in 5-10 tonne lots and batches will vary depending on the raw material available. There will always be a base of soft grey tones, and yellow hues, however, there may also be colour inclusions that can vary in ratio and tone between batches. Here are some examples of current and previous batches of Heron.
