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!

AMAZING! Glasner Studio Virtual Tour
The Glasner Studio Virtual Tour is an interactive learning tool open to anyone with an interest in the history and art of Edgar Miller. Initially constructed from 1928 to 1932 in what would become the Old Town neighborhood of Chicago, the Glasner Studio is considered Edgar Miller’s masterpiece of art, design, and architecture. The multi-level town home is an extraordinary artistic environment intended for exploration, education, and inspiration.

Briefly popular in the 1920s, these beautifully patterned tiles have made a comeback. (Compliments of Atlas Obscure and passed to Tile Heritage by Robin Nicholas)
