Fonthill – Interior

My friend John Barclay is an extremely talented photographer who has exclusive rights to photograph the interior of Fonthill located in Doylestown, PA. Here is a link to his website. He ran a workshop there a couple of weeks ago and invited me to join him. Of course I was honored and excited to attend. He runs the workshops several times during the year. If you have the opportunity to participate in one of John’s workshops, you won’t be disappointed.

Fonthill & Moravian Tile Works

As part of my Doylestown trip, I also visited Fonthill Castle & the Moravian Tile Works. Fonthill was constructed in the early 1900’s and was the home of Henry Mercer. In addition to his home, he built Fonthill as a showcase for his collections of tiles & prints. In 1985 it was designated a National Historic Landmark. The facility that produced the tile, is now known as the Moravian Pottery & Tile Works. It is within walking distance of Fonthill. Handmade tiles are still being made in a similar fashion to the way Mercer produced them from 1898 to 1930.

Mercer Museum

This past weekend I traveled with the Lehigh Valley Photography Club to the Mercer Museum in Doylestown, PA. I have never been here before and I must say this is an amazing place. The building and the artifacts are just incredible. You could easily spend a full day here. This was my first travel with the LVPC. They were a great group of people and everyone was extremely nice. I look forward to the opportunity to do it again.
