The Canvas is a teen arts center in St. Paul. The building itself is entirely built from cinder blocks, and has that elementary school feel about it. There is so much that needs to be done in order to make this space feel more like an intelligent and creative environment for teens. Brett and I couldn't help but be charmed by some of the old fixtures in this space. Ideally, we're hoping to preserve the parts we love, and balance them with newness.
This winter was spent with my hands submersed in clays of all sorts. I'm excited to reveal some new projects for the spring set at SHIP & SHAPE, on April 1st. This is a necklace I made this winter, similar to the spring collection. All the beads were hand made and glazed from terra cotta.
Keep your eyes peeled!
