I took these plant impressions to the Chicago Botanic Garden art fare. Ten each of the creme and blue background colored impressions sold, compared to only six of the green background colored tiles. Hmmmm, greens are not as popular. Sold a variety of other tiles also, including a bunch of my Alaskan themed designs. Delivered a twelve-inch tile to this collector after the show and was blown away by her 500 tiles, all hung and arrayed on various walls.
Well, sales were enough to cover the costs, but what matters more is that I got to visit my aunt and cousins, and one of my sweetheart’s friends from her fish cannery days. She took us to the beaches on Lake Michigan and they were packed during the July 4th weekend…we just don’t see people in swim suits that often in Alaska.
So, I’ll be selling tiles at the Alaska Native Heritage Center, the Anchorage Museum, and the weekend market the rest of the summer, except for when I go down to the Indian Art Market in Santa Fe this August. It’s busy.

These are very beautiful, Ed. They’re the first works of yours that I’ve seen that employ floral imagery. An idea occurs to me, that I’d want to use every one of these tiles in a multi-tiled wall in a room that fronted an urban landscape. But they also could be used in a room whose windows looked out on a bay or a river. … The ideas would keep coming the longer I looked at them.
Thanks Peter. I hope an architect or interior designer reads your post and decides to make it a reality.
Wonderful blog! I truly love these designs. But unfortunately I have already used other designs in my room before I had seen these. I have used tiles from Architectural Stone Elements, and those tiles are also very good. But your tile designs are awesome. Thanks for sharing such a nice blog. Keep sharing. Thanks
