Stunning mosaics from Natalie Blake Studios

Brattleboro, Vermont-based artist Natalie Blake makes tile unlike any other I've seen. Her work is beautiful and evocative at the same time. The soothing, sinuous shapes and textures of her wall-hung mosaics draw attention to themselves without shouting. The stories they tell are purposefully incomplete. Her work requires an observer to fill in the blanks and connect the dots. It's observational, conversational, participational art. Brilliant, beautiful work; all of it. Natalie Blake has a collection coming in June from Ann Sacks. Stay tuned next month and we'll take a look at it. In the meantime, take a stroll through her website, Natalie Blake Studios.


  1. OMG Those are amazing! I can't wait to see what her Ann Sacks tile line will look like! I love the colors and I really like the wood cut printing effect of her designs ... reminds me of a local artist here in Hawaii, Dietrich Varez, who does wood block prints! I can see these tiles being very popular out here! Thanks again Paul for a wonderful find! You are like my cool product google!

  2. The collection Natalie did for Ann Sacks was profiled in the LA Times last weekend. It goes into general release next month and I'm patiently awaiting a press release and photos when it does. Drop her a line, she loves bloggers!

  3. Hi Paul,

    You can now see the Blake Studios line of tiles on the Ann Sacks website: www.annsacks.com
    Ann Sacks is offering the Dahlia, Nautilus and Botanical designs but Natalie Blake Studios can work with clients on almost any other design they choose.

  4. Excellent news Ellen and many congratulations to Natalie. This is quite an achievement!
