This wonderful special edition Pewabic Pottery tile was created through a partnership between the Detroit Public Library Friends Foundation and artists at Pewabic Pottery.
The central point of interest in the original Children's Library is the Pewabic fireplace created by Mary Chase Stratton and and Horace J. Caulkins of Detroit. Produced in 1921, its decorative tiles picture ten tales loved by children. Following a custom as old as time, the hearth was a gathering place for children's story time. It was here among the visual array of beloved stories, children gathered to listen, to dream and to imagine the characters depicted in the tiles.
In the Fall of 2014, the DPL Friends Foundation in partnership with Pewabic Pottery created this limited edition tile depicting William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Pressed and hand-glazed in keeping with the historic pottery maker's iconic style, the tile is the perfect homage to one of the most beloved stories by perhaps the world's most famous playwright.
Dimensions: 8 x 12.5 inches
The tile comes ready to hang, or display on a stand.
