Many thanks to Lisa Hix for publishing this article on local Bay Area mosaic artist Pippa Murray (article reposted below). In a strange coincidence for Fireclay Tile, we only recently learned of Pippa and her amazing work when she visited our tile showroom in San Jose earlier this week. Pippa came in to meet with Paul, our founder and Chief Ceramicist, to discuss a new spa project she is working on.
At 10 to 10:00 I walked into the yard at work on the Saturday of our annual Boneyard Blowout which ends on September 4th. Carlos hadn't even had the door to the showroom open and there were already a few early birds in the boneyard. Within the hour there was a constant flow of 20 to 30 people. It was crazy. I've worked many Saturday's and I've never seen it like this. Our customers were so excited that some tiles were just $.13! They couldn't believe it.
