Salutations from THF Supporters & Friends
Tile Heritage speaks for all of us interested in the world of tiles. What a heritage and history . . . Thanks!

As a tradesperson (stone mason and builder) first and artist-tilenut second, I have a different and perhaps deeper appreciation for what you do. Someone’s gotta look after these things and as tradespeople, we owe you big time. Thanks for being there.

“I want to shine the spotlight on a great organization that is benevolent and generous, the Tile Heritage Foundation. Since it was founded in 1987, this California-based non-profit has been supporting the preservation, history and appreciation of tile. This organization gives back to the tile community and works to preserve our tile heritage.”

“I’ve spent my summer immersed in tile history in the THF Archives ...Archiving is not only relaxing, but I love learning about each tile maker and company.... There are tiny tidbits in each file folder that I find fascinating. Each tile pottery is also unique in the way that it started, from spark plugs (Flint Faience) to backyard kilns (Batchelder.) Arequipa Pottery arose partially out of the destruction of the 1906 earthquake in San Francisco… the long term goal of creating the Tile Heritage Foundation online (archives) finding-aid & index is definitely becoming a reality, one file folder at a time!”
