Local Whistler Artist Penny Eder, of the White Dog Studio at the Crystal Lodge Art Gallery, put her extraordinary sculpting and tile art skills into a tribute piece to Chili’s iconic Mountains in My Mind. It is fashioned from 99 separate pieces of hand sculpted clay, which all fit together as a jigsaw puzzle and have been glazed with vibrant colour. The piece is 18” x 24” and weighs 10 pounds. This piece could be installed as a tile backsplash in your kitchen or bathroom, or could be framed and displayed anywhere.
Penny, a long time kindred spirit with Chili, is donating this piece for the benefit of Chili’s three year old daughter, Poppy. Chili’s and Poppy’s family are deeply grateful.
Mountains in My Heart can be viewed at the White Dog Studio at the Crystal Lodge Art Gallery in Whistler.
