Greenwich House Pottery
|This article needs additional citations for verification. (January 2009)|
Founded in New York's Greenwich Village in 1909, Greenwich House Pottery was a major American outpost of the Arts and Crafts Movement. It was founded as a place both to teach pottery making skills to new immigrants and to carry on the tradition and art of ceramics. Grants from the Rockefellers, Payne Whitneys and Marshall Fields helped the institution survive the Depression and thrive throughout the 20th century.
Notable ceramic artists who have taught at Greenwich House include Stanley Rosen (1956–59), Bernard Leach, Shoji Hamada, Peter Voulkos, and Robert Turner. Israeli ceramist Siona Shimshi studied at Greenwich House.
