So far this summer has been filled with travel for Layl and Josh has been busy in his studio with all kinds of projects.  Layl went on a month long road trip to California.  It will be interesting to see how the landscapes of Utah and Nevada influence Layl's creations in the coming months.

Now that Layl is back she is getting back into creating fish, owls, elephants and who knows what else for upcoming art fairs.  Be sure to check her festival schedule to see when she will be near you. 
Josh's latest project is a donor wall which includes over 130 name plaques.  That's A LOT of letters to press in the clay and then glaze!  This wall will be at the "Friendship Village Fitness Center"in Edina.  It is a memorial for Louis Mosiman that will be in the Swimming Area. 
 We hope you will find time in your busy summer schedule to either stop in and see our latest creations or check out our website.

Tile Project of the Month

Full tilt mosaic backsplash

Full tilt mosaic kitchen backsplash 

        Mosaics have a special meaning to Josh. His very first kitchen backsplash was a wild Klimt styled mosaic kitchen backsplash. Every year we get at least one super bold client that wants to take mosaics to a new level. These clients, Dan and Shannon, wanted to use all 31 colors on our palette. They also wanted to use all the shapes possible from triangles, squares, rectangles L shapes and Zig Zags. Dan, the home owner, came in and picked out almost his whole project form our bins and what ever he could not find he commissioned Josh to make.

        Dan then went home and worked on his project over about a three weekend period and really got inspired the more he placed each tile.

        Every tile project Josh gets to see he is fascinated at how the home owner's personality comes out through the tile installation. He finds the process people go through ordering handmade tile to be a wonderful awakening of clients' creative abilities they did not know they possess.

        Check out the website for colors and concepts you want to consider. Contact us to order samples - five colors for $12.75 shipped right to your door. Or come in and talk to Josh and he can help you design and plan your project. Take out samples free for two weeks. Email or call 612-781-6409 for an appointment or just come on in any time from 11 - 5 Monday - Saturday.
