"Brattleboro, Vermont-based artist Natalie Blake makes tile unlike any other I've seen. Her work is beautiful and evocative at the same time. The soothing, sinuous shapes and textures of her wall-hung mosaics draw attention to themselves without shouting . . . It's observational, conversational, participational art. Brilliant, beautiful work; all of it."
Kitchen and Residential Design
"My mind immediately started racing with possibilities when I first saw these ceramic wall tiles. I think you can tell by looking at these that each is carefully crafted by hand, the intricate raised "wood cut" look is just amazing. I can’t decide whether I like the firey passion of Dahlia, or the mysterious organic feel of Nautilus more . . . these are so gorgeous I’d consider designing a whole room around them . . . Each is crafted using the age-old Italian technique of Sgraffato, or “scratching” . . . to create dramatic, show-stopping murals, with an individual beauty that is also striking as a backsplash or fireplace surround."
