Rookwood and the Industry of Art: Women, Culture, and Commerce, 1880-1913 is a critical appreciation of Rookwood’s rise to its commercial pinnacle, assessing the labor practices and production of ceramic ware as a way to explore anxiety about women’s roles outside the home as well as about industrialization, immigration, and urbanization.
