Plaster Mold Crab Tile

Crab Tile

6″ Plaster Mold Crab Tile

It’s been a busy 2015 so far! I went to two arts & crafts shows in Denver in January and March, and I recently went to Doylestown, Pennsylvania for the Moravian Tile Festival. I made a short trip up to Fairbanks and picked up two new customers, the University Museum gift shop and the Wells Street Gallery. So this year started out with a bang.

Today I start a four week gig teaching student interns how to make tiles and pendants at the Anchorage Native Heritage Center. The Anchorage weekend market has been open since Mother’s Day and I’m selling there on Saturdays. My schedule this summer will be Saturdays at the weekend market downtown, and Monday, Thursday, Friday at the Heritage Center. I will be out of town three times, for the Chicago Botanic Garden show July 4th weekend, The Bellevue Museum show the last weekend of July, and the Sante Fe Indian Market the last part of August.

Other than tile related stuff, my dad, two younger sisters, and myself will be hiking for ten days on the Porto, Portugal to Santiago de Compostella, Spain pilgrimage. What a mouthful, how’s about just Porto to Santiago. This will be in late October, early November, so we were able to use off-season airline miles. Can you believe it, American Airlines offers round trips to Europe for 40,000 miles in the off season. We are members of Alaska Airlines and luckily American is a partner airline.

About Ed Mighell

Former civil engineer turned artist. Received BFA in printmaking. I developed a nice tile clay body using the glacial clay from the inlet next to Anchorage. I sell mainly at the Alaska Native Heritage Center during the Summer. I also go outside, what Alaskans call the rest of the U.S., to large arts and crafts fares.

    I love the crab! The detailed design is something to be admired for sure. Thanks for sharing it.

  2. You make such beautiful things. We have 3 of your tiles in our home (Miami Florida), we always try to buy one each time we go to Alaska. This year we were not able to make there but we sure miss that beautiful state. Do you sell on etsy or anywhere else? I love those raven buttons and that amazing necklace. Have a great day and hope to buy some more of your work soon. ~ Eliana

      Thanks Eliana,
      I will look into etsy. For now, people just look at my blog and email back that they like this or that tile and we do a paypal purchase, either online or by invoice. If I don’t have the item in stock, or in the colors you like, I can make it, and with your desired colors. The necklace is for sale at the Alaska Native Arts Foundation. let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for your previous purchase!
