Along For The Ride Gets a Pedestal!

In 2004 I had created Along For The Ride, a sculpture for the Fairview Children’s Hospital. Recently they asked me to create a podium for  him. Here are the pictures of the process! Hope you enjoy!

    Along for the Ride - created 2004 for Fairview Children\'s Hospital. The turtle\'s shell is covered with travel plates. I had written a story to go with it that is finally getting told - mounted on the pedestal they asked me to make now.

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.
