Calendar: Showcase of Heritage Tiles

from 25.00

Heritage Tile Calendar

Enjoy a changing collection of beautiful tiles throughout the year in your home. This delightful eyelet wall calendar with wire spine will keep you organised and inspired by the past. I’ve opted for the 28-page version, which will mean you will enjoy a generous A4 size photo at the top of each page, and a smaller photo on the left-hand size of the date page. A great gift for family and friends.

Features: 

  • Over 12 exquisite examples of tiles from the Arts & Crafts Movement, and Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods

  • A showcase of heritage tiles from Japan, England and Belgium

  • Hanging eyelet style with wire spine enables pages to be easily turned

Please note that the design of the calendar and the images shown are indicative of the final design. 

Order deadline: Please place your order by 1st November 2019 so it can be shipped approximately 20 days later to local and international destinations.

Early-bird special!

First 50 orders are available at the early-bird price of $25.

Support the Heritage Tile Project

Supported by National Heritage Board

In pursuit of my passion project, I am constantly faced with funding challenges. I am grateful to have recently been awarded with a partial grant via the Singapore National Heritage Board. I am now striving to fund the remaining costs through pre-sales of my book and calendars, as well as through my art workshops and artworks. Your support will make a huge difference and allow me to fully focus on writing my book.

WELCOME TO THE SINGAPORE HERITAGE PROJECT

My name is Jennifer Lim and I’m an Australian artist based in Singapore.

The Singapore Heritage Tile Project is inspired by decorative vintage tiles uncovered in my father’s homeland. Over the past seven years, these ceramic gems have repeatedly popped up along my ancestral journey until I reached a point where I could no longer ignore them. I have come to view such decorative surfaces as a symbol of Singapore’s cross-cultural DNA and trade links between so many countries.

My research into family history has led me to shophouses, clan houses and commemorative spaces of personal and collective importance.

Bukit Brown Cemetery is the focus of my project due to its rich and unusual collection of tiles reflecting Chinese customs, foreign influences and local trends. It’s also a place of rest for several of my family members including my great-great-grandfather from China and my Peranakan great-grandparents.

Since January 2019, the project has collected data on glorious examples from the Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods. With the help of community volunteers, these ‘grand dames’ have been lovingly cleaned and restored to their former glory. Professional architectural photographer, Finbarr Fallon, has helped to capture their timeless charm.

These beauties of the past deserve further study and greater attention. It’s my hope that this project can contribute to an international awareness of antique tiles and promote their protection.

Join with me in leaving a legacy of love for the next generation.
