On being good

I am renovating my apartment and this entails dealing with contractors, suppliers and retailers; some are good, some not so good, and others remind one of Sergio Leone's il Buono, il brutto, il cattivo.

One of the good ones is Arnon Zadok, a master tile setter, an artist and the owner of Ceramica Arnon. He introduced me to gorgeous large (24X48 and larger!) tiles, supplied them promptly and also designed the tiling. See his work at Handmade Tiles volumes.

In Sergio's spectrum, where will General Grant fall? His tomb in Manhattan has beautiful mosaics by Pedro Silva. This is the piece of NY that reminds one of Barcelona. A little bit.
