The facility is interesting, and starts with a video. The tour is pretty basic. On the day we visited there was only one worker pressing tiles, so the demonstration of the manufacturing process wasn't complete.

This is a still-operating company that produces authentic, hand-made tiles from local clay. Four full time employees and student apprentices learn the craft that has produced tiles for churches, government buildings and private homes. It is a long and tedious process, but the results are...More

I think I'll go back here again and again just for the tile shop. The $5 is worth it once to see the video and tour the factory with a live artisan demo. But the tile shop will be a source of gifts for years...More

It's a very interesting tour, however some of the spaces are small, dark and damp. If you are claustrophobic or have very bad mold allergies find a book on it and read about it instead.

Stopped here yesterday with a friend. Spent time browsing in the gift shop before the self guided tour began. A 15 minute video kicks off the tour, which took us about half an hour to complete. The artisan making tiles demonstrated his craft, and cheerfully...More

This is a great tour for understanding how Henry Mercer got into the “tile” making business. The tour approach is a nice change of pace because after a short film you are left to take a self guided tour. During the tour, Crafts(men and women)...More

They had tons of designs so my bet would be that they have a rabbit. All the tiles are beautiful.
