Waterlilies Cream Tile

Waterlilies Cream 6" x 8" Tile

This delicate stylized design of waterlilies, common in the tranquil ponds of the Midwest, is adapted from Frank Lloyd Wright's drawing "Waterlilies", which is thought to be designed for an art glass screen in 1895 but never produced. 

This early example epitomizes Wright's ability to incorporate themes from nature and exemplifies his philosophy of "organic architecture" - the connecting of the natural world into his architecture as well as his decorative designs.
