after visiting the mercer museum and visiting fonthill castle, we walked over to the moravian pottery and tile works for a tour. the building is maintained as a working history museum and tiles are still handmade and produced like they were when henry mercer ran the site. much like the museum and the castle, the building is made of concrete and decorated with the elaborate tiles.
it was really neat to see how the tiles are made and the amount of work and time that goes into making each one. (it totally explains why they are so expensive!). a few photos . . .
