Found Art

Pittsburgh is a great city for just finding art on the street. Some are huge wonderful murals like the one I posted August 11th on my blog about the Pittsburgh Strip District. Others are hidden away and must be discovered.

While walking though Mellon Park I smelled wood burning and noticed it was coming from the Kiln Building behind the art center. I walked over to look at the kiln and hidden away on the wall by the loading dock I found this.

St. Petersburg’s Clay Company

I have a lifelong friend that works as a Pediatric ER Doctor. She is perfectly suited for doing a stressful job that I can’t imagine doing. Not only that she is exactly the person you would want to have doing such a job. For decades she has successfully managed her stress and one of her outlets is doing pottery. She really does nice work and I am happy to have a cupboard full of her outtake mugs.

She took us to visit St Petersburg Clay (http://stpeteclay.com.) which is kind of like a high tech gym for potters. In addition to housing artists, providing resources and teaching classes they have a wonderful gallery full of impressive pieces for sale.
