Testimonial: Ridgedale Library Bench Project

In addition to her wonderful artistic skills, Sheryl has excellent interpersonal relations and an ability to fully understand the mission of the organization she is working for.  This combination made the entire experience memorable.  Those of us who worked with her also grew in our appreciation of art.

Let’s Make Tile – Intro to Tile Making Workshop



An introduction to tile making for mosaics.  Students will explore texture, shape, and glazing while making terra cotta tile.  Students are encouraged to bring cookie cutters and unique textures.  The first night will be an overview of the process and an opportunity to “play” with the clay.  Students will finish class with 5-7 square feet of tile.
Class includes a basic introduction to tile adhesives and installation techniques including mesh mounting.

Class meets for three sessions and tile pickup.  $265 includes all materials.



2014 Winter Class meets:

February 11th, Tuesday 6-9pm for overview and fun with clay

February 13th, Thursday 6-9pm for cutting the tiles

and February 15th, Saturday 10-3p to glaze tiles

the tiles are then fired and arrangements will be made to pick them up.

All classes take place in my studio in the Northrup King Building, home to over 100 artists in Northeast Minneapolis.  Small class sizes ensure a relaxed, fun, no pressure atmosphere for students to explore and develop their own individual creativity.

New Zen Panel Installed in Retek Building, Minneapolis

Flowing Zen Panel

I recently completed a 5ft x 7ft mosaic panel for the lobby of the Retek Building, 50 South Tenth, in downtown Minneapolis.  This is the largest panel I’ve completed and features extra large Flowing Oval tiles, sliced agates, assorted fossils and polished river rock.  It compliments the stone and design of the lobby to the building.  It’s open to the public so stop by and take a look.

Best in show at Minnesota Tile Festival!

I recently won a Best in Show Award at the Minnesota Tile Festival in September.  My work was voted most creative by St. Paul Pioneer Press!  I was very excited to win the award and also have it presented by Josh Blanc of Claysquared to Infinity, my mentor and the man who taught me how to make tile.  Thanks Josh!
