Design Reform in the American Home: Arts & Crafts Pottery

Saurday, Aug. 6 | 2 p.m.

At the turn of the twentieth century, Americans began to incorporate new attitudes about the "House Beautiful" into their own homes. Based on design reform principles that valued function, beauty and the handmade, these interiors offered a respite from the encroaching industrial world. Independent curator and American decorative arts specialist Jeannine Falino will explore the nationwide appeal of arts and crafts pottery, and the many personalities who through talent, force of will, and opportunity created some of the most memorable objects of the era. Presented in connection with the exhibition American Art Pottery from the Fred L. Mitchell Collection.
