A Short History of Moravian Pottery

Moravian potters who emigrated from Europe brought with them designs of flowers and foliage that is evidenced in the works of Gottfried Aust and his protégé Rudolph Christ.  The Moravians, who were a group of religious settlers, first settled in Pennsylvania and then later in North Carolina.  Gottfried Aust was a Master Potter who created simple patterns but with very robust and colorful motifs as was the tradition in the old country.  Rudolph Christ, who was born in 1750 in Salem,North Carolina, later became the Master Potter.  Although he learned a lot from his mentor, you will find that his designs are more geometric while still incorporating the vigorous colors and designs.

Today, The Moravian Pottery and Tile Works is a United States National Historic Landmark maintained as a working museum by Pennsylvania’sBucks County.  Handmade tiles are still reproduced in the manner of Henry Chapman (1856-1930), who was a major proponent of the Arts and Crafts Movement and founded The Moravian Pottery and Tile Works in the late 1800’s.  Floor tiles from this factory adorn the floor of the Pennsylvania State Capitol as well as other building throughout the United States.
