Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 7 November 2016 in Art & Design.

This was taken in 2012 at the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works in Doylestown, PA. Today the factory is a museum. The tile works factory was founded by Henry Chapman Mercer in 1898.The reproduction tiles made today are made using Mercer's original molds, clay that is obtained locally and has properties similar to those of Mercer's original source, slips and glazes that follow Mercer's final formulations.

An excellent job of exposure to get the interior and not have the windows blow out the highs.
