2000Sea View Hospital
Friends of Terra Cotta is very active in getting Sea View Hospital listed as one of the one hundred most endangered sites in the world.
Christine Jetten, a ceramic artist and historic preservation consultant, researched and developed historical glazes and started to compile a register of commissions in the period between 1895 and 1930, which is how she became aware of the existence of Sea View Hospital. During the conferences of the Ceramic Milleium in Amsterdam she met Susan Tunick, who had come to give a lecture on historical architectural ceramics. They kept in touch and Christine visited this fascinating site in the summer of 2000.Tan
