Keramic Studio

keramic01.jpg

A recent addition to the Internet Archive, Keramic Studio was a monthly American ceramics magazine whose first number dates from May, 1899. If you’re like I am these days, and always looking out for new sources of period design, this is a useful title for the large number of decoration templates. The examples here from the first bound collection are designs based on older decorative styles by Adelaide Alsop-Robineau and Ann B. Leonard. Almost all the contributors to the early issues are women, ceramics (and decorative art in general) being one of the few areas in 1900 where women were allowed to indulge their creativity. Collections of the magazine up to the year 1918 may be browsed or downloaded here.
