I am Fay Jones Day, the artist who makes the tile you see on my website. This is a one person business. I also make and maintain my website, answer your emails, and pack up the tiles and samples to ship out. My studio is a little cottage surrounded by oak and pines trees, out in the country, in Alpine, Oregon. I live with my husband, artist Jonathan Day, and our cat Jennie. I have always enjoyed making things with my hands. Clay has been my favorite medium since childhood. In high school I wanted to be a sculptor, but that was to be delayed for almost 20 years. 1989, I got some clay and started teaching myself to make figurative sculpture. While making sculpture, I discovered that I really enjoyed surface decoration, and I changed to making tile in 2000. There have been lots of changes in the last 16 years. I quit my day job and moved out to the country. With that came a fair size studio and my own hours. This year I decided to only buy American made clay and glazes. That as well as using all recycled packaging are changes I feel good about.
