This image is inspired by an ancient drachma, the coin of Athens. Athena, Greek goddess of wisdom was the patron deity of ancient Athens.
The far-seeing owl symbolizes wisdom; it is known for its awareness, its ability to discerns truths. Athena’s owl will watch over you.
My tiles are original designs, often with a mythological or art historical reference.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.
