When I heard about this, I called on John Dee Wareham who has been president and art director of the company for many years and was deeply impressed by the way art has merged with war. For while the pottery turns out its quota of water conduit blocks, the making of its artistic and beautiful wares still goes on. But back to the days when peace and civilized behavior were taken for granted; back to 1880. Maria Longworth Storer had begun some years before with the lady-like art of china painting. Soon she became interested in making experiments in pottery glaze and gained permission to have pieces of her making fired at the Dallas Pottery in Cincinnati. This, however, had not proved satisfactory since the granite ware kilns destroyed nearly every color. So in the spring of 1880, her father, Joseph Longworth, said, "If you are really in earnest in wanting to have a pottery of your own, you may take an old school house that I bought at a sheriff's sale last week and fit it up to suit yourself. "Illustration II: Another Early Rookwood Vase: Signed by the maker, Valentine, and bearing the date 1883, it is typical of the experimental stage of this pattern. The artist who made it later became one of the finest artists who worked at Rookwood.
