Crafted, guilded, generational secrets, pigments, forms, sand, limestone, water, a hydrolic press, art and function all in one, working alone, in a cavernous room. Pere Marti. Handmade tiles made 12 by the hour, drying on racks for 28 days, then journeying to floor saucy habitats here and far away. Rare now, everywhere then. Marti Mosaics, An 1913 factory in Manresa, north of Barcelona where the lonely tradition continues one tile at a time. Thank you Francesca and Benedicte! www.mosaicsmarti.com
