Cowan Pottery Museum

Although it is especially known for its Art Deco pieces, Cowan Pottery also includes examples of Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau, and even Classicism. The Cowan Pottery Museum at Rocky River Public Library in Rocky River, Ohio, holds a comprehensive collection of over 1200 pieces of this distinctive form of American art pottery that was created first in Lakewood, Ohio from 1913-1917, and then in Rocky River, Ohio from 1920-1931. Cowan Pottery was the Cleveland area’s only major art pottery, and today it is internationally known and collected. For more information see their website.
