The Arts and Crafts Movement, which flourished around the turn of the 20th century, emphasized quality, beautiful designs and objects made by hand rather than machines. Marblehead Pottery (1904–1936), from Marblehead, Massachusetts, was an exemplary American manufacturer of arts and crafts pottery of the period. They produced restrained ceramic vases in velvety matte glazes in soothing colors of blue, gray, green, brown, salmon and yellow. Decorations are inspired by nature and feature stylized trees, vines and flowers, as well as sailing ships, which Marblehead used as the company’s icon. The colors and designs emphasize the universal appeal of harmony of line, shape and color. This exhibition features more than 70 exceptional works of Marblehead Pottery drawn from a local private collection.
