Tiling a San Francisco Hillside

by Richard Mohr

May 28, 2015 saw the dedication of this grand art tile installation on the stairs at the end of California Street beyond 32nd Avenue in San Francisco’s Outer Richmond district where the street crashes into Lincoln Park just below the Palace of the Legion of Honor. The installation was designed by Éire-born
Aileen Barr, who also hand-crafted the installation’s decorated tiles and earlier had completed several other SF tiled staircases. The undecorated tiles are by Fireclay Tile Company and Heath Ceramics, both of San Francisco; Dal-Tile supplied the treads. All the tiles were installed up the staircase’s 52 thirty-foot-wide steps by Riley Doty and Phylece Snyder. The driving force behind the project, ten years in the making, was The Friends of Lincoln Park. The total cost of the project, including extensive restoration work to the original WWI-era concrete stairs, came to half-a-million dollars.

CAL FAIENCE

Of Cottages and Castles: The Art of California Faience
FEBRUARY 22 – MAY 17, 2015
Crocker Art Museum Sacramento CA
More exhibition details
. . .During the first half of the 20th century, the period we refer to as the ‘Golden Era’ in tile making on the West Coast, few companies excelled in the craft of pottery and tile making as did California Faience. The simplicity of the form coupled with the quality of the glaze came to represent the quintessence of Arts and Crafts ideals. Historian Kirby Brown tells this remarkable story from a grandson’s perspective, with his heart in every illustrative detail.

Enhance the DOTY RESEARCH GRANT FUND with your support today.
DONATE! … thank you!




THE DOTY RESEARCH GRANT was established in 1992 to stimulate research in the field of ceramic history and conservation. The Grant has been named in honor of Riley Doty, a tile setter, collector and historian, who has dedicated much of his life in recent years to primary research. His willingness to share his knowledge and information with others, freely and openly, has been a continuing source of inspiration.
Grants range from $500 to $5000 for any qualified individual who wishes to engage in primary research or in a preservation endeavor for the enhancement and protection of ceramic surfaces in the United States. Thus far more than $29,000 has been granted.
