Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Grueby Faience Company, founded in 1894, was an American ceramics company known for its production of distinctive vases and tiles during America's Arts and Crafts Movement. The company was founded in Revere, Massachusetts, by William Henry Grueby (Boston 1867- New York 1925), who had been inspired by the matte glazes on French pottery and the refined simplicity of Japanese ceramics he had seen at the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago the previous year, and the architect-designer William Graves. During its first years, Grueby produced glazed architectural terra cotta and faience tiles. Teamed with the designer George Prentiss Kendrick, who was responsible for the simple vase shapes, beginning in 1897/98, and focusing primarily on art pottery vases, Grueby introduced matte glazes, including the matte cucumber green that became the hallmark of Grueby work.show more
