In honor of all the western women who worked, played and competed right along with their cowboy counterparts. On the ranch or in a rodeo, the Prairie Rose’s of their generation have always brought along color and romance wherever they rode. Add some to your hearth today with these wonderful china settings by Teal Blake.
Teal, the son of famous western artist, Buckeye Blake, resides in Texas in the heart of cowboy and horse country. With his western background, he has put together an artful yet rustic design for this salute to the all American cowgirl.
Produced by Pipestone, an American manufacturer since 1978, the dinnerware is rendered in soft shades of rusty red on a cream white background. The line is a highly durable stoneware, microwave and dishwasher safe. It looks fantastic in a variety of settings.
Teal Blake was born and raised in Montana at the base of the Rocky Mountains in Charles M. Russell country. His mother, Tona Blake, a designer, writer and photographer, and his father, Buckeye Blake, a famous western artist both helped to instill his artistic nature.
At an early age, Teal was introduced to horses. He was raised in and around the rodeo circuit and the cutting horse arena. He also accompanied his family to some of the western art world's most prestigious events.
Teal is the great grandson of Samuel Coke Blake, one of the founding breeders of the American Quarter Horse. As his great grandfather did, he raises and shows quarter horses and makes them a large part of his life, both in competition and in his artwork. Currently living in Weatherford, Texas, Teal is a full time artist, doing design work for major western companies as well as commissions for private buyers.
