Of the esteemed Graycliff

The new exclusive landscape ceramic ornament for Graycliff and Frank Lloyd Wright enthusiasts.

Handcrafted tile artists and the style and philosophy of Frank Lloyd Wright have always gone hand in hand it seems. Where you find one, you’ll often find the other.

“Frank Lloyd Wright believed beauty, the arts,and communion with nature were vital to the well-being of people. By reuniting the interior of the human shelter with the natural environment outside, new experiences and patterns are created, the human spirit is awakened, and everyday life enriched.” ~ Margo Stipe

Graycliff, the inspiration for the ornament

There is no better example of this than the Graycliff in Derby, New York.  The home built in 1926-1931 in the Prairie School Style for the Martain family, was their summer home.  The gorgeous estate overlooks the shores of Lake Erie and considered the “jewel on the lake”.  Graycliff is one of only five Frank Lloyd Wright homes to be built between the years of 1925-1935.  

The home, built in the organic architectural style, is open for tours and hosts many community events.  If you haven’t visited, you need to see this place for yourself.
