Artist Profile May 2019 David Jarvinen, The Mosaic Guy

By Karen Bock

I came to the mosaic industry through ceramic tile contracting and a couple of clay artists. Our business was remodeling kitchens and baths with ceramic and glass tile and doing tile jobs most other contractors wouldn’t. This led to a reputation for being creative. During this time, I met a began to work with 2 clay artists that asked me to assist with their school and public mural installations they had created. It was great fun and I volunteered to help. Then, after a year or two of volunteering, I landed a paying gig to cover for one of the artist installers, as they needed to go out of town. That was the beginning. Circa 1998.

  Fashion May 2019 Fashion: Beige to the Rescue!
      (A Quick Guide to a Crayola Summer)

By Karen R. Smith

Personally, I’ve never been much of a fan of beige. Yes, it’s classic. Yes, it’s timeless. But usually, when beige might do, I either go white (if tan) or black (if pale). Beige has always seemed like a too-safe approach to fashion, and my own tastes run to the unique and bold.
