These sweet mushroom tiles were designed by Pewabic Tile Pressing Fabrication Supervisor Kevin Kwiatkowski. Inspired by Pewabic founder Mary Chase Perry Stratton’s line-drawn tiles of various animal and plant life, Kwiatkowski’s mushroom tiles were inspired by his over 10 years of foraging in Michigan. 

Morel mushrooms are elusive and grow unpredictably, but their delicate flavor has made them a favorite of foragers and restaurant-goers alike. They can be found in Michigan from late April to mid-June. May is even known as "morel month" in Michigan.

Many consider the Iridescent glaze to be Pewabic's most important contribution to ceramic art. Through trial, error, and sheer persistence, Mary Chase Perry Stratton developed her first successful Iridescent glaze in 1906. Establishing the formula and stabilizing the firing process took another three years.

Today our Iridescent pieces are fired somewhat similarly, though with safer materials. It requires a third firing and a process called fuming, when vegetable oil is injected into the kiln to create the extraordinary one-of-a-kind effects.
