Moravian Pottery and Tile Works, Doylestown, Pennsylvania USA
Philadelphia
The Moravian Pottery and Tile Works is a historic property operated by the Bucks County, Pennsylvania Department of Parks and Recreation. It is located in Doylestown, Pennsylvania at 130 East Swamp Road. It is a living history museum operated as a functional pottery factory in a manner similar to the original factory. The original factory was founded and built by Henry Chapman Mercer (1856-1930) between 1898 and 1930. Mercer was a major proponent of the Arts and Crafts Movement in America that was led by the American artist and writer William Morris (1834-1896). Mercer is well known for his research and books about ancient tool making. His ceramic tile business was highly successful and his tiles were used in the floor of the Pennsylvania State Capital Building in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Mercer was one of the founders of the Bucks County Historical Society. The building is construction entirely from reinforced concrete.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
