The buds on the trees are swelling here in Michigan and the birds are eagerly awaiting for them to burst open to provide a fragrant perch. This pair of perky Chickadees didn't have to wait for a blooming branch as they are the stars of our April tile, Spring Chickadees.
This artwork comes to Motawi from Yoshiko Yamamoto, a Washington State woodblock artist and dear friend to the Tileworks. Yoshiko captures the fresh essence of spring in this tile with the notion of a cool, nearly cloudless day filled with birds, blooms and a breeze. Yoshiko says; "among all the springtime visitors to our garden, the lively chickadees are our favorite. Always chattering 'chick-a-dee-dee-dee', these tiny birds never seem to tire and amuse us with their playful acrobatics!"
6x6 Spring Chickadees is now available at Motawi Tileworks or on our website. Imagine how perfect this would look perched on a shelf in your home, either by itself, in a frame, on an easel or in a clock. It's the perfect gift for mom, too!
