New Motifs and Old World Tile Decorating
July 20 10:00 - 11:00 a.m.
Tucson artist and designer Carly Quinn describes how she combines modern themes with a centuries-old technique to create an innovative style and unique pieces. Ms. Quinn, owner of Carly Quinn Designs, is a self-taught tile artist with a bachelor’s degree in Illustration & Fine Arts. She started learning the Cuerda Seca technique of making tiles while attending her last years of college and fell in love with the art of tile making.
“Being able to transform my ideas and drawings into a permanent medium such as tile has opened up a world of creative possibilities for me. Tile making is not an easy skill; there have been many times when I have opened my kilns to complete and utter failure, but when my experimental efforts pay off, the rewards are huge.”
