Jeni Lee's "Valleyscapes"

Posted by Debbe Hamada on

Join us Sunday, June 9th from 2 - 4:00pm for the opening reception of local artist Jeni Lee's show Valleyscapes: Paintings Celebrating the Willamette Valley. 

"I work primarily from memory and imagination, allowing the experience and sensations of nature to emerge as I paint. With washes and glazes of paint and water, I continually build and alter the painting, carving out forms and layering light to evoke mood and atmosphere.
The Willamette Valley, with its dramatic skies and endless folds of earth and water, has always been a strong influence on my work, especially in the spring, when the fresh color and light of the season inspires much growth and possibility."

Portland, Oregon artist Jeni Lee is known for her atmospheric paintings of the lush Northwest landscape. Each eartwork is created with layers of acrylic paint, rain and collected, recycled rainwater. This process of engaging with the rain invites unique works through chance and timing, each with patterns and reflections of color and light.

We look forward to seeing you at the opening reception on June 9th or come visit us anytime at the store, Jeni's work will be up on our walls until July 25th.

So many fragrance lines at Tilde!

Posted by Tilde Staff on

We love these fragrances because they are all small batch, made in-house and similar, yet different.
The rich, delicious signature fragrance Olivine, from Olivine Atelier, is based on gardenias, mingled with an earthy musk. Many of the scents in this collection stem from gardenias simply because of the creators love for Hawaii, her second home. Olivine Atelier's perfume oils are 100% fragrance with no additives or carrier oils. All Olivine products are vegan and cruelty-free.

Studio Visit: Stepanka Horalkova

Posted by Julie Beckett on

We adore ceramics and feel the detailed porcelain work of Stepanka Horalkova is some of the finest around. During a recent visit to New York City we were able tour her studio and finally meet her in person.

Favorites in our shop are Stepanka's mugs and tumblers. She hand builds each vessel starting with extremely thin slabs of porcelain. She then embellishes each piece with textures, glazes and additions of color. 

Stepanka also creates wall pieces using porcelain, made in almost a pillow-like style. She had several on display.

And more were hiding on the shelves.

Part of the fun of a studio tour is seeing new work. We loved the sneak peak of these new little planters. It was such a pleasure getting to meet Stepanka, and we thank her for letting us peek into her studio.  Look for more of her new work at Tilde this fall!

Jeni Lee

Posted by Julie Beckett on

This Portland based visual artist creates serene emotive works using paint and rainwater.  For this series, Jeni carried the originals in and out of the rain as she built up the layers of color.

Each original has now been turned into a limited edition giclee print, numbered and signed by the artist.

In this second series, Jeni used rainwater collected at her studio to mix the paints.

We love the colors and the mood these ethereal pictures create.
