My New Tile Trio
These three are now part of my collection from one of my favorite ceramic artist. I am slowly collecting these to make one large piece. With these I now have eight tiles. Here is a little biography on Kathleen Koltes from the Museum of New Mexico Foundation:
"The ceramic work of Kathleen Koltes is functional yet highly decorative. The processes that she uses on her stoneware clay include silkscreen, stamping, drawing and painting. Her recent works have been inspired by the portraits of Modigliani. A consistent theme in her work is derived from plant forms - the result of years as a professional gardener. Kathleen constantly looks for images to use on her ceramics. Ususally, the quirkier, the better! She has been a ceramic artist for 13 years and has lived in Santa Fe for the past 4 years. She has a BFA in Fiber Arts from St. Cloud University in Minnesota."
