A road leads up to the massif des Albères, the vegetation changes and the air freshens. Horses, a dog. The bells from a herd of goats in the  distance. A house, a work of art, of which each ceramic tile, from floor to ceiling, were shaped by its mistress.  Beatriz Garrigo works in a workshop with large windows that open onto an ideal landscape. She studied painting at the Beaux-Arts in her home town of Barcelona. Then, on the French side of Catalonia, she learned to work the red clay of Bisbal.  All of her pieces are spun, dried, cooked, painted, cooked, enamelled and cooked in turn. She sells them in museums and art galleries. Yet, her work is made for everyday use. Mimosa, pomegranate, sea blue, pea green, fish, sun yellow, flower, leaf, grey, cement, red peony and charcoal black. Art and life are the same. Both are made of a joyous serenity, simplicity and beauty.
