In the Origins Collections, Forrest Lesch-Middelton, a potter from Petaluma, Calif., honors places that have most inspired his work. Historic patterns drawn from exotic locales, such as Afghanistan and Libya, rise above the regions’ global politics and explore the cultural beauty of those unfamiliar places. The handmade tiles are rendered in combinations of tone-on-tone whites and browns. Clé. www.cletile.com.
