Healing With Nature Tiles
Themes of healing and transformation are explored through richly textured tiles created with relief printmaking tools and techniques in this series that began as a special commission. Starting in the fall of 2008, I created 236 one of a kind ceramic tiles for the UC Medical Center in Irvine, California. The final of three phases was completed in January of 2010. A framed 9" x 9" square tile is installed in each of the patient rooms of the medical center.
I have continued to make new tiles with the Healing With Nature concept. As a person's healing journey is foremost in my awarenes, I choose restful colors and plant forms as major components. The various small inset images and birds are symbols of healing and transformation; the berries and seed pods are metaphors for the patient germination time that precedes a new beginning.
Framed tiles are available in two sizes: 4" x 4" and 9" x 9".
