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


We are celebrating our 20th year as a handmade tile and polymer clay art showroom/studio located in the 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 millefiori 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 1890s to 1950s. Come in to view our beautiful showroom, meet our friendly, knowledgeable staff and to get help with your tile projects. Take classes and discover Clay Squared to Infinity's amazing work.
