. . . . a lovely mural installed in Ibby's Restaurant in Mid-State Mall, East Brunswick, New Jersey by Abby Hoffman of Sacred Tile, North Brunswick, NJ.
From concept to finished mural: Design, Layout, Carving...wait patiently for drying...firing, glazing, firing, installation, border tile, grouting, aah, it's finished. Next it's fixed to panels, transported, installed and grouted. Come see the mural and enjoy some great food at Ibby's Restaurant in Mid-State Mall, East Brunswick, New Jersey.

Tile Heritage Returns!



There are few things at Tile Heritage that bring us greater pleasure than publishing a new issue of Tile Heritage: A Review of American Tile History. It’s been some time since we did so!
For many years Tile Heritage presented a tile symposium every year, from 1991 in Doylestown to 2005 in Minneapolis and Duluth. Among other things the symposiums fostered scholarship in the field of ceramic tile history. Year after year knowledgeable people were invited to present papers at these gatherings and to provide the Foundation with their work to publish, hence the origin and purpose of the
Tile Heritage Review.

Yes! you can FAUX us some of the time!

Shared forward from Cfile
RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil — Adriana Varejão isn’t afraid of a little blood. In fact, much of her work uses the austerity of blue and white tile combined with suggestions of gore and violence to confront uncomfortable, tragic historical topics such as slavery and colonialism. Varejão isn’t content to let these things stay buried. She’s honest, recognizing that the grotesque, shameful violence from the past is running under the hood of our modern lives. You don’t get to appreciate her blue and white tile without acknowledging where it came from; that’s the cost of admission.
