What do the three intertwined loops of the trinity knot mean to you? Body, mind, and soul? Past, present, and future? Mother, father, and child? The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit? Whatever significance this ancient symbol holds for you, this meaningful decorative wall tile will be something to treasure. The tile is made by hand from free-form stoneware clay, painted with two coats of vibrant green glaze, and topped with a final coat of clear glaze. The careful choice of clay and glazes and the firing technique combine to produce the brilliantly rich coloring and the subtle crazing reminiscent of ancient pottery.

Did You Know? The unending three-looped pattern of the trinity knot is one of the most famous designs in Celtic art. It appears frequently in the eight-century Book of Kells and has been used by artists and craftsmen for centuries to symbolize unity and strength.
About the Artists. Wild Rose Pottery has been making unique, handcrafted stoneware wall tiles for more than 30 years. This family-owned pottery studio was established by Maureen and Barry Payne in 1978 on their country property about 20 miles northeast of Winnipeg, Canada. Maureen is the original potter in the family, having trained in England before emigrating to Canada in 1967. She graduated with an Advanced Ceramic Diploma from the Cambridge Institute & Balls Park College Hertfordshire. She has been practicing her art continuously since that time, primarily making stoneware pottery. Although Barry received a physics degree from University of Leicester, UK, and his career was in the aerospace industry, he has always been active in pottery, with a particular interest in raku and handmade tile designs.
