Summer reading for creating every day

When I return from a work trip after next week, my plan is to go into my ersatz studio (the textbook workroom of my school library) and create art for my walls--either a mosaic or ceramic tiles.  I won't be taking classes anytime soon from the Institute of Mosaic Art, now in Berkeley rather than in Oakland.  I did see that Ellen Blakeley will be teaching tempered glass mosaics, but that won't be until September.  In the meantime, I'd been wanting forever to create a Rajasthani tapestry a technique that Laurel Skye occasionally teaches.

I'll also be continuing to work with the medium of clay.  This summer, I'm enrolled through my city's parks and recreation department in a drawing and painting class as well as a throwing class.  And if that weren't enough, I'll also be taking "Explorations in Clay" at a community college.  I bought frost porcelain clay (Cone 5) from Leslie Ceramics to make a driftwood mobile as well as translucent, snowy white tiles text and imagery.  Stay tuned!
