Local tile artist does it again!
Congrats to East Falls mosaic artist Trish Metzner on her second win for outstanding Creative Tile in Public Space at a big industry awards ceremony & shindig, which is basically the Oscars for global tile & stone professionals. Trish specializes in colorful, glittering “Magic Garden”-style installations, including a 900 foot mural beloved by the people of Zacatlan, Mexico (where it’s become a tourist attraction).
These days, Trish is leading a community-engaged art project for East Falls’ gateway at Kelly Drive and Ferry Road: a giant catfish named Waffles swimming with a “school” of mosaic fish at Trolley Car Café. This May, Trish begins holding classes providing neighbors with all the skills and materials they need to add their own fish to the display.
