Algoma Students Create Garden Sculpture

Large, colorful toad or butterfly sculptures are appearing in gardens and yards throughout Algoma. The clay sculptures were created by 75 students from St. Paul’s School that had the opportunity to work with artists from Clay on Steele.

The students were given this opportunity by the Tom Levenhagen Foundation, an endowment created by the Clay on Steele owners in honor of Ellen Levenhagen’s parents who were avid art appreciators. Parents of the school also partly funded the project.

Teacher Paula Wendland and two new resident potters, Jimmy Eddings and Keith Carter, helped the students with their clay projects. The foundation also supports Eddings and Carter. The school, students and teachers are very appreciative and enthusiastic about the clay projects.
