The recent re-openings of Leighton House and the De Morgan Museum have reignited interest in tiles. This week we have posts on five artists, all women, who have created fine public art with tiles. Peggy Angus (1904-93) used basic tools eg potatoes and lining paper to design predominantly abstract tiles which were used in foyers, stairwells and entrances of schools to great effect. They can still be seen in many locations, including the Lansbury Lawrence Primary School (1951), a Festival of Britain showpiece school.
