Our founder Maria Longworth Nichols Storer made history on Thanksgiving Day in 1880, with Rookwood becoming the first large manufacturing enterprise founded and owned by a woman in the United States
Today, Rookwood continues to build upon its rich heritage and Maria's vision through our continued dedication to crafting the highest quality Art Pottery and Architectural Tile in the United States.
