This pioneer among American art potteries, established by Maria Longworth Storer of Cincinnati, Ohio, in the last quarter of the 19th Century, has turned over that part of its manufacturing facility where fine tiles were made for the manufacture of wooden blocks which have compatibility into sections, making water conduits. The executive is in need of those at the moment, especially for Army camps, as the metal and cement normally used for such functions is at a premium. Illustration I: Rookwood Vase Dated 1882: Butterflies are the motif of this hand-painted piece. It is of the period when the trend in Cincinnati was to beautify particular person pieces made at the pottery. Illustration I: Rookwood Vase Dated 1882: Butterflies are the motif of this hand-painted piece. It is of the period when the trend in Cincinnati was to decorate particular person pieces made at the pottery. When I heard about this, I called on John Dee Wareham who has been president and art director of the company for a long time and was deeply inspired incidentally art has merged with war. For while the pottery turns out its quota of water conduit blocks, the making of its inventive and exquisite wares still goes on. But back to the times when peace and civilized conduct were taken without any consideration; back to 1880. Maria Longworth Storer had begun some years before with the woman-like art of china painting. Soon she became attracted to making experiments in pottery glaze and gained permission to have pieces of her making fired at the Dallas Pottery in Cincinnati.
