Lesley Goddin Named to Tile Heritage Foundation Board

Healdsburg, CA, January 18, 2024-Lesley Goddin, editorial director and senior writer for National Tile Council of America’s TileLetter and TileLetter Artisan edition, has been appointed to the board of directors of the Tile Heritage Foundation (THF). 

This decision, made unanimously during the summer 2023 meeting, aligns seamlessly with Goddin's experience and dedication to the tile industry.

Goddin assumes the position following the retirement of Riley Doty from Doty Tile in Oakland, who served THF for two decades. 

Lesley Goddin joins members of the THF Board, including Joseph A. Taylor, Sheila Menzies, Eric Astrachan, Josh Blanc, Irene de Watteville, Katia McGuirk, and Kathy Meyer. Together, they are dedicated to advancing the mission of THF and celebrating the incredible artistry of tile.

THF advocates for the ceramic arts and mosaics as well as the preservation of significant installations. The library and archives that have been housed at the Healdsburg, California headquarters since 1987 are immense, and are a resource for tile makers, academics, the public and those in the tile industry seeking to match or source period tiles on restoration projects. THF is a custodian of over 40,000 documents, more than 44,000 digital images, and more than 4,000 American ceramic tiles dating back to the late 19th century.
