Jamie Laventure

“Mostly, I work in clay. I make miniatures of things that I see on the sidewalk –fire hydrants, a paper box, a pop machine. I make things with moving parts—a windmill and a wishing well, clock and compass faces. And I make monster faces and creatures with the head of one animal and the body of another. I like detail. Also, I like letters and making signs. I’ve made many signs for my brothers and sisters and my home, and I’ve made my small signs into magnets. My colours are mostly bright. At home, I make a lot of things too. I do a lot of collage with whatever pictures I like to fill the page and pencil crayons to fill blank space.”

In addition to his ceramic and printmaking work, Jamie has created amazing sculptures with glass, many of which hang in the permanent installation at the East Edmonton Health Centre.
