Artist in Residence Program

This year we are excited to host Robert Rossel as our featured artist in residence at the Middle School. Mr. Rossel has been working with clay for more than 25 years. He majored in Ceramics at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. After graduation, he moved to Southern Japan where he completed a Master Apprenticeship in Classical Ceramics with Nomora Junji. Once he returned to the US, Robert completed an assistantship with nationally renowned ceramic artist, John Glick. Robert moved to NH in 1995 and became a juried member of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen. He has created large-scale tile murals with schools throughout New England and has worked with thousands of school children. Robert is the owner of Symmetry Tile Works located in Epping, NH. His tiles are handmade and covered in crushed, recycled glass. Rob's tiles are used in backsplashes, showers, pools and anywhere else people want to add a bit of beauty.

Over the next two weeks, Mr. Rossel will be working with all EMS students to create mosaics and tiles that will be placed on functional decorative cubes, which will be displayed in the EMS lobby. The mosaics and tiles will consist of recycled clay tiles and glass; students will be designing stamps, produced by our in-house 3-D printer, to stamp the tops of cubes. This project integrates multiple disciplines that will come together in a beautiful addition to our school all the kids can be proud of!
