ABOUT VERDANT TILE
Mary Philpott is a member of the Roycrofter's At Large Association based in East Aurora, New York.  A native of Oakville,
Ontario, Mary earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree with distinction at the University of Guelph focusing on Art History and
Archeology.  This sound foundation naturally led to an interest in clay and in pottery specifically.  Mary studied at the
School of Crafts and Design at Sheridan College and went on to a 3-year residency at the Harbourfront Craft Studios in
Toronto.  After her residency, where Mary developed her pottery table ware line called Wandering Fire Pottery, a studio
was created in the west end of Toronto.  There Mary taught classes and made her own work for seven years.  All tiles are
made by hand in Mary's Artisan studio in Seagrave, Ontario, Canada. The tiles are made in a traditional tile making
method, all hand drawn and carved and hand pressed with unique imagery and subject matter.  Multiple firings and  layers
upon layers of transparent jewel tone glazes that are all applied meticulously by hand give the tiles a look that is unique to
Verdant Tile Co.   Inspired by the color, narration and design of Medieval Illuminated Books, Tapestries and Architecture,
Mary's work in tile and in sculpture explores the story of Flora and Fauna of her surrounding landscape. Mary works as a
full time Studio Ceramic Artist, designing Tile for custom work and producing a line of Limited production, hand
Pressed tile in Porcelain. Mary also produces unique sculptural pieces reflecting the animals and avian that she illustrates
in her two dimensional tile. Further studies have included Anthropology and Archeology at McMaster University,
and Ceramics Intensives at Alfred University, NY.  She is a 2015 recipient of the Helen Copeland Award from the Ontario
Craft Council, for an Established Artist working in her field. Her membership affiliations include:
Roycroft Renaissance Artisans, Craft Ontario, Tile Heritage Organization, Hamilton Potters Guild, The William Morris
Society, TACS : Tile & Architectural Ceramics Society, Britain, AIR Vallauris, France, Fusion clay and glass Association

The Tiles are all designed for installation in fireplaces and hearth, kitchen and bath.  
Her tiles all have a notch on the back for hanging.
