Rookwood Pottery is widely considered to be some of the highest quality, mass-produced pottery ever made. Hand-painted and fired, each of the works is unique and a local treasure.

Each work presents a character and style unique to its era. The vivid, colorful glazes offer visitors a peek into our local heritage and shine with a vibrancy that’s as breathtaking today as it was when they were first produced.

Tour CAM’s collection Saturday at 2-3 p.m.with a trained docent, who will offer context and details on Rookwood’s rich history.
