It is COLD outside.  I'm talking long-johns-double-socks-and-multiple-sweaters cold.  The icy winds are doing a number on my skin and the only saving grace is this body oil I received from a friend.  Turns out, Meow Meow Tweet is a small-batch, handmade bodycare line owned and operated by two artists in their studio.

WHY:  After a group show the artists decided to change direction.  Jeff explains, "We did a 180 from our interests in spectacle and play, and considered a more community based approach to our work.  We thought soap would be an effective way to engage the public because of a common need and understanding for what it is.”
