Impressed follows the traditional connection of tile work and architecture, with imprinted images of landmarks that have personally impacted me. Each iconic structure recalls a moment, standing before a building, rendered speechless and small, feeling a sense of place and history in a way that cannot be felt by viewing artwork in a museum. These tile panels each have been hand carved and glazed, one tile at a time, with landmarks of different cultures, centuries and styles that nevertheless share a singular ability to impress.”
