The Beauty Of Tile Works

Post image for The Beauty Of Tile Works

There’s beauty to be found wherever you go. 

Earlier this week, Brigette and I took the day to explore the beauty that is the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works – an incredible museum and national historic landmark located just outside of the city. We heard this place was the home to some amazing tile work, so we wanted to check it out for ourselves. What we found was a castle-like structure adorned to the brim with a historic collection of immaculate tile and antique findings. We were surprised to find that this place is actually an operating tile space, too. We found tiles being made from local clay right in front of our eyes. We spent a few hours winding down the dungeon-like corridors, taking in every detail that caught our eye.

If you ever find yourself in the area, you should absolutely take a wander through the Moravian Pottery & Tile Works. They even host fun classes and workshops. :)

Beautiful photos! And thanks for the link.. I was curious how old this place is. I love wondering around old landmarks like this, imagining how life was like back then.

Such Amazingly Gorgeous Photos!!! They have the feel of a time long ago, in a past century when the pace of life was slower and simpler. When the craftsmen all took pride in the quality of their work. Thank you so very much for sharing!!!
