From Amanda Harris in Toronto: " I collect Art Nouveau / Arts & Crafts tiles, and also occasionally find related items of interest.I have recently acquired an album full of 125 hand drawn renditions of religious delft tiles, some with pencil-written notes linking the illustrations to their appropriate biblical references.

“These were the studies made by one Thomas S Cole, a Toronto ceramics collector, and it would appear, from a newspaper article in the album, that, in 1928, at the age of 84, he was selling some of his collection, and this sale was featured in The Toronto Daily Star (October 13th 1928).

..It states that The Royal Ontario Museum was among 'Institutions and individuals' who were-keen to secure some of his antiques. Presumably he made these drawings of religious Delft tiles in his collection ( called 'plaques' in the article).
I have been unable to trace this man, records of purchases made, or his collection, but feel that it must be of interest to someone, possibly one of your members?”

Northern California Fires . . .Tile Heritage Foundation Library, Archives and Collections are SAFE! It has been a harrowing 10+ days. Most mandatory and advisory evacuations have been lifted. We feel very fortunate that the winds have stayed calm since around October 9th – allowing the ‘First Responders’ on the ground and in the air to have a broader opportunity to manage all the wildfires. It is emotionally and physically draining to be vigilant for long periods of time.

We are also HAPPY to announce that since 5pm yesterday, Thursday 19th, our whole area received some much appreciated rain… it was light but steady for a few hours last evening, dampening down the very dry landscape of the northern counties – this added a huge assist to managing the still burning fires in our area. We are very grateful to everyone working to keep us safe. The fires are not yet extinguished but the % under control has grown significantly.

Winds are still light - an additional blessing … we will sleep more soundly this weekend here in the north counties… we also know that it is increasingly dry and windy in Southern California – a high alert remains in place in the south.

Thank you for all of your connection and support … these have been very wild times this past 10 days.

Sheila & Joe
