Hydraulic Tiles

(decorative pattern)
recreated from the Threlkeld Granite Co Ltd’s Album: Ornamental Granitic Tiles (1898), sheet 8

The Internet Archive has Threlkeld Granite Co Ltd’s Album of ornamental granitic tiles online, and I’m really digging the patterns of the hydraulic tiles they made. I’ve recreated some of their patterns in InkScape, and made this small demo by tiling bitmapped renderings.
