From Crocks to Jazz Bowls: 150 Years of Ohio Pottery

Location: Campus Martius Museum
Time: 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
601 Second Street
Marietta, Ohio

Among the earliest settlers come west to the Ohio territory were potters. Ohio’s topography and geology created the perfect environment for potters to ply their trade and trade their wares. During Ohio’s first century and a half, more than 1,000 potteries produced millions of pieces of pottery that were sold both locally and throughout the Ohio River Valley. From utilitarian stoneware to French-style porcelain, Ohio pottery was the result of both tradition and innovation, and it reflects the complex cultural and economic history of the state.
