The Natural History Museum has extended its StoryTiles range of ceramics tiles, which will now be part of a new StoryWood range and appear on sustainable birch wood.

Amsterdam-based StoryTiles creates quirky art on tiles, wood and cards. Its underwater world collection combines historical illustrations of fish from the Natural History Museum’s archives with figures and backgrounds that interact with it.

The illustrations for both wood and tile ranges include a watercolour painting by Sydney Parkinson made during Captain James Cook’s first voyage to explore the southern continent between 1768-1771.

“These elegant and quirky designs make unusual and appealing use of some of the most extraordinary 18 century artworks in the Museum’s archive,” said Maxine Lister, Senior Licensing Manager, Natural History Museum.

“I’m delighted that the range has been extended to a new format and sure that both tile and wood art will be enormously popular.”

Each unique design in the new range is pressed on sustainable birch wood and made in the Netherlands. The StoryWood underwater world collection will be available in three sizes: small (40 x 60 cm), medium (60 x 90 cm) and large (80 x 120cm).

The StoryWood range launched in early June. It will be available in over 200 specialist shops in Europe, Asia and North America as well as online.
