Winner of the Tile Heritage Foundation Prize

"Tall Grass"

My handmade tile group, Artisan Tile Northwest, recently held its annual fall show and sale. Along with it being my first experience to participate it was also the first time held at the Center for Urban Horticulture. The CUH was a wonderful venue for the Botanical themed show providing a lovely garden setting and lots of natural light. Attendance was high and the tile making demos were a huge success. I was also thrilled when my entry, “Tall Grass” won the Tile Heritage Prize in the juried show. It was selected by Seattle artist, George Rodrigues, who is represented at Foster White Gallery. It was an honor to receive the prize from Tile Heritage Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the research and preservation of ceramic surfaces in the United States.
