We have a shared enthusiasm for art and nature that has guided us through many years of marriage. In 2010, we wandered into to a realm of tiles, mirrors, and concrete at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens. The Raven Barn studio allows us to take on every aspect of this work, from firing custom tiles to casting concrete, and whatever other technologies we decide to explore.
We founded the 1st Street Mosaic Project in 2013. This collaborative community art project received the 2018 Ithaca Pride of Ownership Award.
We had a busy summer! A highlight was our show, Feathered Friends, in Orient, NY.
This slide show includes examples of cookie cutter tile, hand cut tile, layouts for mosaics, and other works in progress. The last image shows Wes with the portrait of our patron saint, artist Dorothy Corbit.
