Online Profile of Hands on History Tile for Archives of Ontario

Tara Lynne Franco, Bertram's Legacy

I was so pleased to see a great profile of the tile commission I completed for the Archives of Ontario on their online database. My tile, Bertram's Legacy was inspired by the Bertram family of Dundas who was an important family in Dundas' history. This tile, along with 7 other fantastic large-scale tiles by Canadian ceramacists Keith Campbell, Ying-Yeuh Chuang, Nicole DeBrabandere, Hugh Douglas-Murray, Richard Gill, Thomas Aitken and Kate Hyde, and Robin Tieu will be installed on the first floor of the Archives of Ontario's new building on the York University Campus. Here are a few of the other tiles. For details on these and the other tiles please visit the website at http://www.archives.gov.on.ca/ENGLISH/exhibits/hands-on-history/index.html
