    Life After Tyler: 2024 Graduates Share Their Plans

    Author: Alina Ladyzhensky

    Graduating senior Chloe Mordan (Ceramics BFA ’24) first had the opportunity to work at the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works in Doylestown, PA, as a summer intern last year. That experience has landed her a job with the working history museum, which still produces handmade ceramics tiles in the way its founder did in the late 19th century. “It’s a nice combination for my Ceramics concentration and Art History minor,” Mordan said of her position, which will involve demonstrating how the tiles are made using old equipment in the Arts and Crafts style of the time. She credits a class field trip to the museum with Associate Professor Lauren Sandler with helping her land the internship.  Read More
