Reclaimed slate on a wall

A friend gave me these beautiful old tiles that no one wanted.  Success for my low cost workshop. I decided to have a go at tiling a wall and to get this wonderful material appreciated. A technique for cutting the slate with a claw hammer enabled me to create this gorgeous wash of matte grey and purple.  It frames the glazing so well with the reflective surface of the glass working in wonderful contrast to the slate.
