"The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

  • Artist Statement

    This piece so befits itself. The design is of a common owl, nothing extraordinary, caught in a moment between daylight and full night, rounded with neutral tones and a sepia complexion. It is in its ordinariness that this tile stands out. It beckons, saying that if you can see the miracle of everyday things and common spaces, you have gone beyond the desire for novelty and found wisdom.
