      Plus Ultra: Moravian Tiles of the New World
    • Sunday, July 5, 2015
    • During the age of exploration the motto "Plus Ultra" reflected the belief that there was "more beyond" the known realm. The phrase was also used as a personal motto by Henry Chapman Mercer (1856-1930), the mastermind behind the Moravian Pottery and Tileworks in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Mercer, who founded the Arts and Crafts style pottery in 1898, was a man of great and varied expertise in history, archaeology and craft. First produced in 1912, his epic relief tile cycle of the New World originally consisted of 29 tiles, though he continued to add to the series over the years, expanding it to more than 70 tiles. The exhibition "Plus Ultra" features 25 of the original tile designs of the New World series which were commissioned for a gracious home in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, where they remained for nearly seventy years. This exhibition marks the first reinstallation of these tiles, which will be displayed as continuous frieze as they were originally intended.
