Olicana was the Roman name for Ilkley, West Yorkshire where artist and designer David James set up the business to create bespoke mosaics. 

David creates commissions for gardens, interiors and commercial projects;  creating bespoke features, luxury retail entrances, surface detailing and mosaic restoration.

Although mosaics of various kinds are often the start point, the work has developed to take in other aspects of decoration and detailing.

All commissions are designed and created with attention to detail, quality materials and a considered approach. 

David works with designers, architects, developers and  head gardeners of private estates and individuals to produce bespoke decorative features here in the UK and abroad.

David frequently exhibits at Chelsea Flower Show and is featured in the Interiors Index.

Clients include the RHS, Sir Roy Strong, Bettys and Taylors of Harrogate. 

His work is featured in leading interior, design and lifestyle publications including The English Garden, The World of Interiors, Dezeen and Country Life.
