In Memory of PHYLLIS PACIN, Ceramist & Ti
le Maker.

Oakland CA - we found out recently that she had passed away Spring 2019.
Phyllis was an early adapter of 3D illusion in design on tiles. Organically abstract, playful, colorful luster glazes and frequently raku fired, her finest work was in architectural compositions.

Phyllis contributed a strong voice in the art tile c
om

unity of the greater Bay Area and beyond. She is greatly missed by family and friends. Phyllis's body of work is her legacy and is to be found in museum collections, public collections and private homes.
More about Phyllis here!

THANK YOU ORGANIZERS OF To
tal Solutions Plus 2019 !
Our sincer
e thanks to CTDA, NTCA, TCNA and TCAA for making it possible for Tile Heritage to be at Total Solutions Plus. Being there with so many of our sponsors, supporters, advocates, friends & colleagues is so valuable to THF. There are many opportunities to interface and network, be of service and connect. The Gaylord Hotel and Conference Cente
r
was a very big and interesting venue …. and very easy to get lost in!

The educational aspects of TSP provided some seriously useful tools to all a
ttendees. The casual and social aspect
s
provided ample opportunity to pre-plan meeting up and interfaces with colleagues as well - which we valued greatly. With Table Top space provided as well during TSP, we could promote the 'Final Call ' for Global Monumental Hand Prints!
CHECK IT OUT HERE!

CTDA, NTCA, TCNA and TCAA assembled the best resources to help better b
uild the tile industry during TSP 2019 - THANK YOU!
