Pewabic Pottery, Detroit, MI  1903-present

This is a delightful cuenca tile depicting a whimsical sea creature or dragon.  It’s velvety glaze in a rich, dark sea green overlaps the edges.  Pewabic has a long design tradition of crafting tiles that feature beautifully modeled creatures and this is a wonderful example of that legacy.   See this tile in Norman Karlson’s Encyclopedia of American Art Tile, Region 3, page 243.
