since my job incinerated itself in January, i’ve spent the last six months working for my friend Jess at Bella Mosaic Art. most of the work involves making, glazing and firing tiles, by myself, in her lovely, well lit studio in Mount Airy while listening to NPR. pretty much as close to bliss as i could possibly ask for. i also started making tiles for myself, which i haven’t done in a while. right now there is a kitty litter bucket full to the top of tiles i need to glaze and fire. delicious.
