Ruskin Pottery Facts

  • Ruskin Pottery was founded in 1898 by painter Edward R Taylor. His son, William Howard Taylor, later took over the business.
  • Under his son, William, Ruskin Pottery is typified by experimental glazes and brightly colored, high-fired pieces, inspired by Chinese ceramics.
  • William destroyed all of his recipes and notes shortly before his death in 1935. In taking his glaze secrets to the grave, he ensured that his ceramics were impossible to replicate.
