Untitled by Natalie Blake

      Recognizing the contribution art has had in the Mayo Clinic environment since the original Mayo Clinic Building was finished in 1914, Mayo Clinic Proceedings features some of the numerous works of art displayed throughout the buildings and grounds on Mayo Clinic campuses as interpreted by the author.
      Unique to her ceramic tiles is the three-dimensional nature of the hand-crafted pieces. Most of her works are commissioned and thus begin with conversations and drawings before the sculpting of each creation begins. Additionally, each of the tiles are hot fired at 2,100 degrees ensuring their durable nature.

      Untitled consists of sixteen 14 x 14-inch glazed ceramic tiles that were created in 2010 (descriptive plaque). These floral representations pulse with life and movement. The images align well with a statement on Blake’s website noting they “believe in the healing power of art.”
