Mike O’Day, a humorous illustrator, stumbled upon a clay studio in 2004 and immediately decided to transform his 2D sketches into 3D sculptures. After gradually discovering how to prevent his sculptures from cracking or exploding in the kiln, his career as a sculptor began. Presently, his garden art, murals and assorted quirky creatures are seen throughout the Seattle area and in galleries from Edmonds to Seattle. He also teaches and regularly receives local grants for student group projects. He is a member of Sculptors Workshop, NCECA and a regular member of the Edmonds Art Studio Tour.
