Karen Morrice of Oddinary Tiles - Tile Heritage Prize Winner
at the ATNW Tile Festival Seattle November 2014

“I am Thrilled to have been selected by Tile Heritage for this piece.”
- Karen Morrice
The Juror for the Tile Heritage Foundation Prize during the Artisan Tile North West Festival (ATNW) was THF member Ron Endlich, Antique tile collector. The theme for the juried show was “Feathered Friends.” Karen’s piece is called “Sky Chat.” It is elegant!
Tile Heritage Foundation’s mission is to document and preserve tile history in the U.S., both past and present. The prize goes to the artist whose tile, in the opinion of the juror, best represents the ceramic traditions of North America in keeping with the “Feathered Friends” theme.The prize consists of a check for $100 plus a $100 Centurion membership in Tile Heritage with a link to the artist’s website (total $200 value) to see the rest of the show and other winners as well as Festival Details go to
ATNW weblink. We had a great time in Seattle! Tile Heritage Foundation is honored by ATNW with space to sell tiles donated from Artisans from around the country as well as at the show. It was a successful fundraiser for THF… our thanks to all who donated tiles!
