We are transitioning the THF archives and collections to an online Finding-Aid categorizing the resources
that are available to the industry and to the public at large. The work requires many hours of dedicated service, which will result in a searchable reference guide relating to ceramic surfaces heretofore inaccessible on the Internet.
The work is well under way, but we need your assistance! We have funded and digitized our entire slide collection, which when added to our digital photography of the past several years, numbers roughly 42,000 images. Secondly, we have digitally recorded the historic tiles that have been donated to Tile Heritage over the years, which represent a collection numbering over 4,000 different glazed and decorative tiles, second to none in the U.S. This is YOUR legacy!
