Please note: Clay Squared will be closed for Thanksgiving weekend.


We are a handmade tile and polymer clay art showroom/studio located in Northeast Minneapolis Art District.  We are a husband and wife team both creating our art work in different types of clay. Josh Blanc makes handmade ceramic tile and Layl McDill creates polymer clay sculptures with her "Silly Millies" (polymer clay millefiore canes).

Clay Squared to Infinity is also a tile showroom that carries local and national contemporary tile artists and reproductions from seven historic tile companies from the Victorian, Arts & Crafts and Mid-century periods 1890's to 1950's. Come in and view our beautiful showroom and meet our friendly knowledgeable staff and we will help you with your tile projects. Take classes and discover Clay Squared to Infinity's amazing work.

Events & Classes

Bead and Button Class

$40 supplies included

Sign up your friend for only $25 more.

We start this class by adding curly hair to some funny little ladies and then turning those into beads and then we'll roll clay around in glitter and mica powder and more! It sounds crazy but you will learn how to roll colors of clay together to create amazing beads that can be baked in your own oven. Delight in the magical technique of millefiore which will make multiple beads that can be shaped into beads or buttons depending on how you slice it, dice it and poke it! No fancy equipment here- just your bare hands and a cutting tool and a toothpick and you will come away with a pile of beads and buttons to use in all kinds of creative projects.
