Batchelder: Tilemaker is the first local retrospective dedicated solely to the life and work of the influential artist and educator Ernest A. Batchelder. Batchelder was an author, designer, educator, artist, and tilemaker who settled in Pasadena in the early 20th century. The breadth of Batchelders design aesthetic and range of his shop production will be on display, with tiles from the earliest days in Pasadena, through the final production of his large factory in Los Angeles (1910 - 1930) and his pottery business, founded in 1936. Highlights include a full-scale fireplace, large scenic landscape and medieval tiles, and original tile molds and design drawings. Special features include never-before exhibited items from the tilemakers family, including the custom family medallion Sign of the Green Rabbit; recreation of a Batchelder showroom, with examples of a miniature salesman sample fountain and fireplace; and a 3-D immersive tour experience of both the 1909 Batchelder bungalow in Pasadena and Los Angeles Dutch Chocolate Shop, one of Batchelders earliest large commissions (1914). The 3D models are made possible by Matterport, a company specializing in fully-immersive media that allows users to easily create, modify, navigate and build on digital representations of real places. Another exclusive video installation, by Skycraft Studios , includes interviews with leading scholars and a segment with journalist Patt Morrison speaking with Dr. Winter.
