A Portrait of Plumage

From the fantastic details of Gaudi's Barcelona to masterful Arts and Crafts creations, decorative tiles have a rich history. Parran Collery continues this tradition with the tactile relief and jewel-toned glazes of her feather study. From her petite studio in southern Maryland, Parran sculpts terracotta vignettes inspired by the organic elegance of Japanese woodblock prints. Each of her pieces is fired multiple times and finished with her own unique glazes, bringing an intense lushness and sense of depth to each tile. Hang this feathered-friend tribute in your favorite nesting place. Handmade in Maryland.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

"How fortunate I am to have found the medium of clay," says Parran Collery. From her little studio in Southern Maryland, she works with terra cotta clay to create relief-sculpted ceramic tiles and mosaics. Parran is curious about the ordinary things we see every day—birds, leaves, flowers, bugs—and these fascinations make their way into her designs. She also finds inspiration in art history, especially Japanese woodblock prints, in poetry, and in friends who are amazing artists, all of which provide the starting points for her designs. To create her tiles, Parran rolls out slabs of clay and begins sculpting to create a low relief design. Her pieces are then fired multiple times to achieve the final glazed surface. All of her glazes are her own unique formulas, bringing an intense lushness and sense of depth to her tiles. In all of this work, she strives to create compelling designs that invite people to love tiles.
