The Diversity of Contemporary Ceramics is Celebrated at Greenwich House Pottery’s Ceramics Now

Long before gaining its contemporary status as a medium for art and personal expression, pottery was considered an artisanal skill.

In 1909 the settlement house expanded its immigrant assistance programs with the addition of pottery classes in the spirit of the Arts and Crafts Movement (a reaction to the period of heavy industrialism in the early 20th century) which emphasized handcrafted goods, in the hopes of providing struggling individuals with a marketable skill.

Six-year-old Village girl Lisa Steinberg was found murdered, the victim of physical abuse, with the prime suspects her adoptive parents.
