Art Pottery was first made in Cincinnati, Ohio during the 1870's. Art pottery antique pieces were hand-thrown, hand-decorated artistic products. Later antique products, also considered part of the antique art pottery movement, were made with underglaze slip decoration, matte glaze, high-gloss glaze, carved, molded, or applied decoration, and with a variety of other techniques. The antique art pottery pieces were hand thrown and hand decorated. The antique art pottery tradition continued until the 1920's.
