East Side Coop Commission
This steel and mosaic carrot sculpture is installed at the Eastside Food Co-op at 26th and Central Avenue NE in Minneapolis, MN. It was designed by Clay Squared to Infinity.
A collaborative artistic effort, Dirk DuBois constructed the steel frame while Sheryl Tuorila designed and set the mosaic tiles in the sculpture. Handmade ceramic tiles from Clay Squared (made by Josh Blanc and Greg Good), and handmade glass tiles by FK Art Glass adorn the 10-foot tall carrot.
Daucus Carota is even featured at the Carrot Museum.

They have excellent customer service. From getting samples sent to placing an order the entire process was simple and easy. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants a great product with great service.

Great experience working with Clay Squared! Responsive and helpful. They had the foresight to add tile pieces that hadn’t occurred to me or the tile setter, which ended in a great finished product. Thanks!
