Lilywork

Lilywork Ceramic Ornament is based out of Bucks County, PA, an area rich in handcrafted tile heritage. Lilywork designers draw their inspiration from local tile-making traditions, as well as, world travels, historic patterning, and architectural studies. Their designs reflect cross-cultural elements from historic Korean, Turkish, Roman, Persian, Moroccan, Central Asian, and Spanish decorative arts.

The owners, designers, and creators of Lilywork are ceramists Paul and Esther Halferty. Paul, a graduate of Tyler School of Art, has been producing tiles for twelve years and currently is the mold-maker at Moravian Pottery and Tile Works. Esther, a graduate of Hartford Art School, has gathered experience as a museum assistant collections manager, art teacher in Istanbul,Turkey, and design consultant. She has been creating tiles for eight years. Both use inspirations from travels abroad to develop designs.
