History: The American art pottery movement is recognized to have its birth in Cincinnati, which maintained its reputation as America’s most important center of art pottery until the end of the nineteenth century. Maria Longworth Nichols, the granddaughter of the Cincinnati real estate millionaire Nicholas Longworth, founded the Rookwood Pottery Company the most famous American Art Pottery in an old school house located a few blocks from the Ohio River in Cincinnati, Ohio. Mrs. Nichols was born on March 20, 1849, in Cincinnati. Her interest in decorated ceramics began in the 1870s when she practiced the popular hobby of china painting. Rookwood was named after the country estate where she grew up. Believed to have been named so due to the large amount of crows(rooks) found there Mrs. Nichols brought in many artists that became a part of art pottery history including Shirayamadani, Valentien, Daly, and Van Briggle. After working the pottery for nearly 10 years, Mrs. Nichols became Mrs. Storer and withdrew from the pottery to pursue other interests with her new husband. 1890-1900 Rookwood Pottery became the preeminent pottery in the United States and Europe resulting in the Grand Prix awarded to Rookwood at the Paris Exposition in 1900. At that time museums throughout Europe, Russia and the United States began adding Rookwood examples to their collections, including the Hermitage in Saint Petersburg, Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City. 1900-1929 Rookwood produced some of the finest under glaze decorated pottery in the world. Rookwood was sold in the finest jewelry and department stores in the United States and Europe, including Tiffany in New York and Marshall Field in Chicago. Awards were won at all the major exhibitions. 1930-1967 Several poor business decisions and the stock market crash of 1929 brought Rookwood to the brink of bankruptcy. Rookwood laid off almost all of the decorators and ran the pottery with a skeleton crew a few days a month. Rookwood never fully recovered from this event. The company changed hands several times over the remaining years of its life. In the 1930s and into the 1940s Rookwood produced many fine examples of pottery created by a new generation of decorators, Jensen and Barrett among them. A few of the original artists remained: Shirayamadani, Hurley, and Wareham. In the 1950s almost all of the decorators were gone and Rookwood struggled to make a profit. Rookwood’s production consisted almost entirely of undecorated pieces made from molds. To reduce labor costs, Rookwood’s new owners moved the pottery from Cincinnati to Starkville, Mississippi in 1960. There they continued production until 1967, whereupon its operations were suspended by its new owners. Eventually, all assets were sold. During its long history, the Rookwood Pottery produced thousands of pots, including artist decorated (and signed) pieces, as well as a line of “production” (or non artist signed) pieces. Most Rookwood pots are molded; however, many produced during the Arts and Crafts period feature incising of shapes (usually flowers, insects, or Native American designs) on the pot after it was removed from the mold. Well known Rookwood artists include Kataro Shirayamadani, E.T. Hurley, C.S. Todd, Albert Valentien, William Hentschel and Sara Sax.
