Linda Buck

new artTILE artist ~ Jennifer Mannila
Jennifer Mannila 
portland, or

Jennifer Mannila says "I have forever known two things in my life to be true; I love to think creatively, and I love to work with my hands." Jenny's tiles are a delightful expression of successfully doing both! Her tiles have strong imagery, the black hand-painting of a silly bird, funky owl, or mischievous meow-maker contrasts beautifully against stark white clay, allowing her delightful patterns & funny expressions to be center stage.

NEW artTILE~ Lynne & John Hume

takoma park, md

Lynne & John Hume tiles have a distinct appearance~ reminiscent of tiles created during the Victorian era.Their tiles are low relief designs in porcelain accented by a variety of transparent glazes that pool & flow, beautifully highlighting each design.

NEW artTILE~ Michael Terra
Michael Terra 
paducah, ky

Michael Terra, a.k.a. the "Mud Poet" fancies himself a ceramic wordsmith, creating artwork that spark people's own memories while telling a story. Michael's inspiration comes from his endless curiosity; his search for finding common truths that connect art, poetry, and humanity. His tiles combine ceramic sculpture with his original writings designed to amplify the emotional impact, and invite you, the viewer, to initiate / cultivate your own unique response.
