Historical and contemporary photographs screen printed on porcelain tile honor the Japanese
American experience in the Japantown neighborhood of Seattle’s International District.

Six 8 x 8 inch tiles are inlaid into the edges of eight planted cisterns set along the
sidewalk slope which are watered by collecting rain from the rooftop of a nearby
building. Also, two kiosks of metal and porcelain tile flank the city block with printed
Information about Japantown and the water collecting system. 

International District, Seattle, Washington. Eight planters and two kiosks. Screen printed porcelain tile, 2010.
