Mercer Museum Trip

On Monday we went to the Mercer Museum.  While we were on the tour we saw the tiles Henry Mercer  made and where he put them in his house.  After the tour we went to the tile factory that Henry Mercer built.  We saw a video on the process of making the tiles.  We also saw a live demonstration of tile making. We saw the tile maker press the tile using a mold. We also saw how they remove and dry the tiles.  We are now going to make our own tiles in art class, and I am so excited to do this.
