Rookwood definitely did a large number of flora on their vases, for example. But the more interesting artists had a completely unique style and their works stand out. They're automatically recognizable, while numerous more youthful artists copied one another. If you go back to the 1880s, there weren't any books on how to make art pottery. It was a new and emerging idea, and plenty of people tried to produce an identical look and managed to take action using alternative ideas. They had to invent as they went. A lot of the technical stuff had to be developed by trial and blunder. Rookwood tended to be prior to the pack when it comes to innovation and more acutely aware of what was occurring the world over. There were a lot of those who played off Rookwood and produced a very similar product. Weller, Owens, Roseville �C numerous Ohio companies made similar products, not as good for the most part, though they each made merchandise that were appealing of their own right. In other parts of the nation, Grueby in the Boston area did some astonishing matte glaze pieces and beautiful designs for tile installations.
