This listing is for a single ceramic tile from my “Orchard” series. The series was inspired by the landscape of Central California. San Joaquin Valley’s landscape has been transformed by commercial farming, creating a very regimented, grid-like, linear feel. I’ve used this pattern-like approach as basis for many of my works. The “Orchard” is one of the pieces that successfully marries the mechanical, rigid visual qualities with individualized, clearly hand made characteristics. The series continues to grow and it's installation changes depending on the space I show it.

Each tile, hand formed in a press mold, measures approximately 2 ½” x 7”. The depth of tiles varies between ½ to 1 1/8”. They are not completely uniformed, making a statement that even seeming perfection is not truly perfect. ☺ The imagery of the threes is created by painted and mono-printed colored slips, underglaze pencil drawing and glaze washes. Again, while these trees are very similar, they all have their individual character. Some of the tiles have subtle stamped text in the background. The back side of each tile is hollow and it hangs on a single nail.

This listing is for a single tile of your choice. Please convo me with a description of what type of tile you would like to select from the variety offered. (contrasting in color or very quiet, mostly brown or multiple colors, thick or thin etc.) I will take some images of the potential candidates and e-mail those to you for confirmation. Of course, you also may select multiple tiles and I’ll gladly create a custom listing for you. I think the larger my “Orchard” is, the more powerful its visual statement becomes. Tiles can be arranged in a single row as well for more austere/contemporary look.
