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 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 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.

Let the next adventure begin- We are buying a building! Last month we received word that Clay Squared and Potek Glass won our bid on a foreclosed property in the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District. Clay Squared has been trying to buy a building for our business for almost 16 years. After over a dozen tries at other properties this one appears to be the winner. We won the Requests for Proposals put out by Community Planning & Economic Development or CPED to have the exclusive rights to develop the building.
