Collector Bookstore Notes:

Helps professionals, dealers and advanced collectors identify American Art Pottery from previously obscure small pottery studios. Dating from 1870-1955, this title covers in depth the numerous art pottery operations associated with the depression years, American Indian trade schools, and other early immigrant/ pre-industrial pottery schools.

Publishers Full Description:

This is a comprehensive study of American art/studio pottery, dinnerware, and other functional wares (including china painting and ceramic decoration and design) produced without a primary profit-making motivation. Researched over a period of six years, it documents ceramics activity from the first recreational china painting enthusiasts, through varying stages of formal ceramic instruction, to the shift from ceramics as craft to art. This invaluable resource details works from non-commercial programs, including the Saturday Evening Girls, the Works Progress Administration, and many others.
