American Art Pottery From The Collection of The Everson Museum Of Art

New York: Abrams, 1997. Hardcover. Photographs By Courtney Frisse. American art pottery, whose heyday spanned the late 1880s through the late 1920s, has endured as one of the country's most popular styles inn ceramic design. Today, it is a highly sought-after collectible. For this book, Perry, former curator of ceramics at the Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse, New York, has selected 100 of the finest examples of American art pottery from the Everson's renowned holdings. Through these works, she traces the development of American art pottery from the early handcrafted wares through the increasing encroachment of mechanization. Descriptions of the most prominent potteries and designers are provided, as are invaluable in-depth commentaries about the important objects pictured in lush color plates. Firms including Rookwood, Grueby, and Weller are highlighted, as are outstanding potters, among them Maria Longworth Nichols, Artus Van Briggle, Adelaide Alsop Robineau, Kataro Shirayamadani, and George Ohr. Complementing the art pottery are examples of the finest American art tiles of the period. 100 illustrations, 55 in color. An important resource.
