This was a quick little project that I might not have even bothered posting but I really wanted to show off the print, which was done by Yoshiko Yamamoto. The print features the Omni Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC. If you appreciate Arts & Crafts furniture and happen to be near Asheville, it is well worth visiting the Grove Park Inn to drool over their collection which may be seen in the public areas of the hotel-lobby, restaurants, hallways, etc.

My thanks to Luddite, AKA Terry, for mentioning Yamamoto prints in one of his projects. Thanks for looking.

That’s a perfect addition/accent piece to all of the awesome pieces you’ve already made over the years. I love Yoshiko’s stuff. I was lucky enough to win one of her tiles at a show in San Francisco. She even signed it for me. A lovely, talented lady. I’ve been looking to get more of her stuff. I love the classic lines of your frame.

Lovely frame, it really does the print justice. I met Yoshiko at the Arts and Crafts Weekend this fall in Pasadena. She has such great energy and is one of my favorite artists.

Your living room scene looks like a page out of the Stickley catalog. I hope your family realizes what a talent they have in you. They are pretty lucky to have this magnificent furniture whipped up in your shop.

I have a big book on the history of the Grove Park Inn, and plan to visit one day soon. East Aurora, NY is on the list too, but I have to make the time.

Kudos to you, and I’m quite glad you posted this. I very much enjoyed it.

My thanks to everyone for the kind comments.

Willie, when you come east you should add the Stickley Museum to your itinerary. We are planning to get there next Spring. East Aurora was fun; take a look at the Roycroft Inn.

Art – looks great. I’ve got several Yamamoto framed prints hanging around the house and a couple I haven’t gotten around to making frames for. Gorgeous Stickley style settle and end tables. The print fits right in. I have to ask where you found the upholstery.

Very nice, coincidentally, two Yamamoto block prints just showed up at the house yesterday, so I have frames to do as well.

The frame is nicely done in a simple, but elegant style.

Classic piece of work for such a great print. This’ll go well with your other AC pieces.
Yoshiko Yamamoto’s work is a fantastic set of steps. Check out her web page
