Our Teco Art Pottery Collection™ was selected by the set decorators of Celebrity Apprentice (Season 8) to be used in the living quarters for the show's contestants. You can see the 4 Buttress vase in Teco Green just above Tom Green's shoulder.

We'll be giving a presentation at 7:30pm on Friday July 25th, 2008 at the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture in Spring Green, WI.

The lecture is titled Brand Architecture: Building Ways to Market You and Your Ideas.

We've added many new select retailers to our Where to Buy page on the website! So many more, that we've actually had to redesign our web page to accommodate the growing list. You'll see the map of the US, which wasn't there before.
If you still do not have a retailer in your area, please visit one of these fine online retailers on the internet:
Decorative Hardware Store
Fair Oak Workshops
Just Art Pottery

I walked into the Room & Board in Oak Brook, IL a couple weeks ago and was thrilled to see our Teco Art Pottery Collection™ on display. The folks at the store did a wonderful job placing the product in a great spot and coordinating it with the color palette of the gallery space. Stop by and see the collection if you're in the Chicago area (or any of the other cities Room & Board has a presence).
We're looking forward to taking or receiving photos of other retail spaces carrying the Teco Art Pottery Collection™, so we'll post those to the blog as we get them!
We are just thrilled with all the attention our new Teco Art Pottery Collection™ has been receiving in the press! If you don't usually read any of these publications below, this is your chance to see our spotlight coverage. We've recently been featured in Style 1900, Time Out Chicago, Old House Journal, Chicago Home & Garden and American Bungalow. Thank you to all the editors and writers who had many wonderful things to say about our pottery.
You can click each image below for a larger view or stop by your local bookstore to pick-up a copy.
In the coming months, we'll have even more magazine features that we'll update you with as they are published.
For those of you who don't subscribe to Arts & Crafts Homes Magazine, the Teco Art Pottery Collection™ was featured in the newly released Summer 2007 issue of the publication. You can download the actual PDF here.
We are extremely excited about this coverage and many other features that will be popping in magazines between now and the holiday season. Keep checking back often to see what others are saying about the pottery!
PS - For those of you waiting to get your hands on the actual pottery...many stores will have inventory by the end of August 2007. Also, a handful of online retailers are taking pre-orders and will ship product at the end of August as well.
Please feel free to email us at [email protected] with any specific questions!
Prairie Arts teamed up with our friends at Copeland Furniture to present official Frank Lloyd Wright Collection licensed products at the 2007 Wright and Like event in Wisconsin. We also brought along some prototype Teco Art Pottery Collection™ pieces to debut at the event--and people we're definitely excited! Look for more info on the official Teco launch later this month.
The wonderful people at the Wright in Wisconsin did an outstanding job of putting together a great set of tours and activities for this year's Wright and Like event. If you missed it, look forward to 2008 to attend what will surely be another fantastic time. For more info, visit the Wright and Like website.
The 5th Annual Restoration Gala to benefit Frank Lloyd Wright's Unity Temple was a success! The Wright designed building was all a glow with dramatic lighting and Japanese lanterns. Traditional Japanese drummers performed for the audience, who also enjoyed sake tastings and fine food from Oak Park area restaurants.
Prairie Arts was proud to donate two pieces from our product line to the silent auction fund raiser: A large Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio Playroom Art Screen and a framed Unity Temple Wasmuth fine art print. We we're glad to contribute to this worthy cause!
