All the tiles are hand poured and finished in their London based studio making each and every piece completely unique.
This unusual process was spotted by WGSN (Worth Global Style Network) in 2013 when Zhang was commissioned to create the trophies for the Global Fashion Awards held in the Victoria and Albert Museum London.
