Michael Flora is from California and recently moved here.He is a master tea connoisseur and has traveled to China to study tea. We have tested him and he really knows his tea leaves. Needless to say we have lots of tea breaks now...well a few more than before... and some with cookies. Yes, we have it hard here at Clay Squared but someone has to do it, so it might as well be us. But you are all invited to come anytime and hang out, read some of our tile library, talk tile (or tea) and check out Michael's fabulous California accent. Also check out Michael's musical talents. He is a uber contemporary musician using sounds and computers to create his music. Click here to hear his work of Nada.
Chris Madsen is our organizer and finisher! Chris loves to organize and keep us on track. This is a very helpful skill around Clay Squared to Infinity since Layl and Josh are like small tornados making messes as we create. She lables and prices all of the work around the shop, ships tiles and polymer clay sculptures and Silly Millies all over the country and the world. It is her finishing touches that make us looks so professional and smart.
Chris is also an artist! She currently works in Polymer Clay making Fun black and white photo cards and polymer clay house portraits she calls Everyday Friends Art check out her work on facebook.
