Yoshiko Yamamoto is a self-taught block printmaker fuses Japanese design sensibility with fine craftsmanship. Several years ago, Nawal Motawi, a longtime admirer of Yoshiko's work, approached the artist because she thought the bold prints would work well as a raised-line tile design. She was right. Yamamoto's graceful, swaying scenes bring the clay to life.
The Winter Cardinals Tile is inspired by a print Yamamoto created to be featured in the PBS series Craft in America.
Actual tile size: 5.8 inches wide x 7.8 inches high
