Tile Company named final Pride in Potsdam nominee


POTSDAM - The Potsdam Chamber of Commerce has named its final Pride in Potsdam nominee for 2012: The Tile Company.

The Tile Company, located at 6 Raymond St., has dressed up the exterior of its building with two creative masterpieces.

First, a beautiful mosaic is being created on the exterior entrance wall using colorful tile remnants.

Owner Otto Czerepak was assisted by Tracy Taylor, Coldon Maclaure, Collin Prahl, Laura Passmore, Dennis Smyth and Sal Sarmiento to pull off the first section of the design.

This design includes a fire breathing dragon. Mr. Czerepak will finish the second section of the mural in the coming months. He is very pleased with the results so far and appreciates the time and effort from his

creative friends.

Another exterior wall facing the alleyway was covered with a colorful mural painting showcasing a lion’s head painted by Dennis Smyth and a geometric pattern by Collin Prahl.

“Otto has taken a very creative approach to the improvements of his building,” according to Potsdam Chamber Executive Director Marylee Ballou.

“Beyond the exterior improvements, The Tile Company continues to support wonderful artist by providing a space for the Creative Spirit Community Arts Center that host fantastic art showcases.”
