Custom Glazes Brighten Seaside Park and Community Arts Center

Over 30 years of experience replicating historic glazes and developing new ones has allowed Boston Valley Terra Cotta to amass extensive knowledge and resources to rely on when manufacturing glazed architectural terra cotta. The company’s expertise, in combination with that of Christine Jetten, a renowned Dutch glaze artist,  remains a vital part of the restoration of the former Coney Island Childs Restaurant.

The custom glaze process began with samples of the original terra cotta being removed from the existing building and shipped to Boston Valley. The new Seaside Park and Community Arts Center will feature this completely restored nautical motif; skillfully glazed by hand, giving Poseidon, various historical sailing ships, and sea creatures depth and vibrance. The brightly painted elements almost jump off the blocks, helping to recreate the magical feeling that this building has just risen out of the sea onto the boardwalk.
