From Our Hands to Your HomeCreators of one-of-a-kind, Hand-Thrown Art Pottery since 1880.
140-Years of Women Artistry
Maria Longworth Storer Nichols made history on Thanksgiving Day in 1880 – founding the first large manufacturing enterprise led by a woman in the United States. With the courage to open her own pottery, Maria helped to launch the art pottery movement in America. Within a decade, Rookwood gained international acclaim, rivaling European and Asian potteries that had been in existence for hundreds (even thousands) of years.
