Ceramics & Pottery - General

From saucers to steins and cups to chandeliers, the field of antique and vintage ceramics and pottery is vast. Adding to that diversity is the remarkable range of styles: from the bold colors and shapes of Clarice Cliff to the subtle simplicity of a Fulper flambé glaze, the possibilities in ceramic and pottery design are endless.

These dynamic pieces share an extensive history in human culture. Ceramic pottery played a part in early human history, and soon after its initial creation, potters began adding innovative designs. The ancient Greeks, for example, developed a vast tradition of storytelling in their painted vessels with refined narratives and incredibly impressive artistic techniques.

By the end of the 19th century, potters began to adopt contemporary aesthetic trends. The eras of Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco fed into innovative approaches to art pottery. Thanks to this creativity and diversity, we enjoy a rich market for ceramics and pottery today. Auctions are often full of an incredible variety of pottery pieces, a true delight for collectors of ceramics.
