SOFT TILE AND BRICK 248

Problem
How can a person feel the earth, or time, or any connection with his surroundings, when he is walking on the hard mechanical wash-easy surfaces of concrete, asphalt, hard-fired architectural paving bricks, or artificially concocted mixes like terrazo.
Solution
Use bricks and tiles which are soft baked, low fired - so that they will wear with time, and show the marks of use.
You can make them in a simple mold from local clay, right on the site; surround the stack with twigs and firewood; and fire them, to a soft pink color which will leave them soft enough to wear with time.
