William Grueby also created a distinct American line of Art Nouveau pottery when he open his Grueby Faience Co. in Boston with the goal of pursuing "organic naturalism. " His firm invented fine vegetal matte glazes, and when its pots were shaped, colored, and fired, they came out looking remarkably like they were made of broad, living leaves and gourds. While the pots were usually green, Grueby also employed its high-quality matte glazes in myriad colors to make beautiful ceramic tiles. In this interview, Riley Humler talks about collecting Rookwood art pottery, and discusses the history of Rookwood and its artists and products. Based in Cincinnati, Humler is Gallery Director of Cincinnati Art Galleries, which holds two Rookwood auctions each year. He also appears as an appraiser on Antiques Roadshow. I don't remember the first Rookwood piece I ever bought, that's getting close to 40 years ago. But I must have liked it, because I kept studying and learning, and it's been a lot of fun and a lifelong thing. I'm originally from Kentucky, about 90 miles down the Ohio River from Cincinnati, where Rookwood was based. So there was Rookwood in the area, and I could also drive up here to look for things.
