The Moravian Pottery and Tile Works, a National Historic Landmark, will be transitioning to a lease operation soon . . . more DETAILS . . .
The Pottery has been maintained as a "working history" museum by Pennsylvania's County of Bucks, Department of Parks and Recreation. Handmade tiles are still produced in a manner similar to that developed by the pottery's founder and builder, Henry Chapman Mercer (1856-1930). We are SO grateful that this 'icon of the industry' will continue… as more details emerge, we will SHARE them with you!

WORKSHOPS & COACHING
This is an opportunity to virtually engage master mosaicist Michael Kruzich for coaching/mentoring/ consulting, if you feel you need some help on a mosaic project you are working on. Michael was trained at the prestigious Mosaic Art School in Ravenna, Italy by Maestra Luciana Notturni and her colleagues. His work has been exhibited nationally and  internationally, at the deYoung Museum in San Francisco 2020, “Embodied”, the 2019 SAMA Invitational Exhibit at Vanderbilt University, the Ravenna Mosaico 2017 Biennale, winning awards at the annual “Mosaic Arts International” exhibits in 2010,  2011 and 2015. Coaching can sometimes help you come at your work from a different angle, find a new solution to a difficult technical problem, or take your work to a new level.

Paducah’s Finest Hotel
by Joseph A. Taylor

Located strategically in western Kentucky where the Tennessee River joins the Ohio, Paducah was also favored by the Illinois Central Railroad that established its repair shops there. By the turn of the 20th century, prosperity had begun to take hold with the city’s population approaching 20,000. Being the seat of McCracken County, Paducah experienced considerable growth during the 1920s, enough to inspire major local investments.
