    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.

She credits a class field trip to the museum with Associate Professor Lauren Sandler with helping her land the internship.  Read More
