About Newcomb Pottery
The rich colors and varying textures of a diverse pottery collection brighten any room of the home and create a connection with humanity's rich history. Newcomb pottery was created between 1895 and 1940 and reflected the then-fashionable Arts and Crafts style. Many of the potters and ciphers who created this vintage pottery drew inspiration from the natural environment, particularly in Louisiana. Local plants and wildlife influenced the colors, shapes, and patterns found on the pottery created at Newport College, which is why many of the examples of Newcomb pottery available in the vast inventory on eBay are painted in dominant colors of blue, green, and yellow. Some even feature silhouettes of moss-draped trees or the shapes of flowers in bloom. Newcomb artists favored abstract designs and gently curving lines. Bring their artistic vision into your home by using pitchers, vases, bowls, and other forms of pottery art as decorative accents or even functional pieces. Use your pottery pitcher to water your plants or designate a vase as a receptacle for the fresh flowers you bring home from the supermarket each week.
