The Holden Arboretum Presents Gifts from the Heart of Nature 2019

Hard to believe the holidays are upon us again! It is my honor to have work in the Holden Arboretum's annual art show and fundraiser for the 9th consecutive year.

The show opens this Friday, Nov. 15th with a party! After that, it will be open daily from 9-5 through the end of the year (closed only on Christmas eve and Christmas day.) The tiles pictured above are from last year's show. Here is some of what I made for this year:
three inch handmade tiles for the holden arboretum holiday show
(Above: 3"x3" tiles in blue and green glazes)
There will be a large selection of all different sizes and designs. Most of the plants and animals depicted on the tiles can also be found alive and well at the arboretum. (Not the dolphin, obviously!)

Since it is an arboretum, naturally I made plenty of tree themed tiles. Proceeds from the show benefit the Arboretum as well as the local artists who created the work.
