Oak and acorn tile

The oak is a common symbol of strength and endurance.  

In Greek Myth, the oak is the tree sacred to Zeus, king of the gods. In Zeus’s oracle in Dodona, the priestesses would divine the pronouncements of the god by interpreting the rustling of the oak’s leaves.

In Celtic tree lore, the oak is associated with strength, resilience and self-confidence.. The Oak King rules over the summer months, and this tree was sacred to the Druids. Mistletoe grows in oaks, and Druids ritually harvested the plant for herbal/medicinal uses.

The acorn is a symbol of strength and power. Because the acorn only appears on a fully mature oak, it is often considered a symbol of the patience needed to attain goals over long periods of time. It represents perseverance and hard work, and creativity. 

 My tiles are original designs, often with a mythological or art historical reference. I sculpt and carve the original in clay and make a plaster press mold. Having a mold allows me to streamline the process and reproduce my design in multiples. Each one is hand painted with a variety of glazes and underglazes; each one is unique. They are ready to hang, bringing a little myth and symbolism to your everyday.
