Minton Tiles c. 1865 -1867
Bethesda Terrace, Central Park NYC (USA)
Manufactured in Stoke-on-Trent, England
Bethesda Terrace provides the formal centrepiece of Central Park NYC. The Arcade is famed for its unique Minton Tile Ceiling created from nearly 16,000 encaustic tiles made in The Potteries 150 years ago.
A small consignment of original tiles will make a unique return journey from Manhattan - via Liverpool - to their historical ’birthplace’ in Stoke-on-Trent as part of a transatlantic cultural (re)connection led by Danny Callaghan (UK) & Matt Reiley (USA)
