Potters have been producing hand decorated ceramic pottery throughout history. Worldwide, many cultures have produced and decorated with hand crafted ceramic pottery.
In America, decorating with ceramic pottery really began in the 1880s with the start of the arts and crafts movement by Grueby pottery. Ceramic pottery from the original arts and crafts movement has become so popular that even today in the 21st century, many studio potters are still making ceramic pottery in the handcrafted style of the original arts and crafts movement.
Handcrafted and decorated ceramic pottery continues to maintain a strong and developing collector base. Over the last several decades, prices for quality, antique ceramic pottery have rapidly appreciated. Due to the limited supply of antique ceramic pottery and the continued increase in the ceramic pottery collector base, this consistent price appreciation is expected to continue as the supply continues to go down.
