Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I talk with director Katia McGuirk and curator Vance Koehler about the Moravian Tile Works. The institution has gone through many iterations in its long history, which started in the late 19th century with Henry Chapman Mercer, and is now home to a living history museum and working tile studio. In our interview we talk about Mercer’s aesthetics and legacy as a tile maker, the history of earthenware production in the region, and the recent revival of the facility under the not-for-profit Tile Works of Bucks County.
