We will be imprinting into wet porcelain clay with textural objects. If you have any small objects that can get wet and might leave an interesting texture please bring them. Oftentimes families have brought leaves rocks and old jewelry.

These tiles will then be used in the snowflake portion of the design.

The mosaic, a partnership between Valpariaso Tri Kappa, the Valparaiso Art Advisory Committee and the Chicago Public Art Group, will be installed in Summer 2015.
