A new online collection of Wisconsin ceramic art is a featured highlight from the Wisconsin Historical Society this week. This online tour includes 175 objects in the collection of the Wisconsin Historical Museum, inluding over 100 examples of work from Pauline Pottery and other Edgerton art potteries that I photographed in Madison this past December. The feature includes a link to the Wisconsin Decorative Arts Database, which includes images of Pauline Pottery at the Neville Public Museum of Brown County, Pauline and other Edgerton potteries at the Rock County Historical Society and the Kenosha Public Museum, and work by Susan Frackelton at the Milwaukee Public Museum and the Milwaukee Art Museum. You can find examples from the Wisconsin Historical Museum’s collection of art pottery there as well.
