Behind the Brush: Women of the Pauline Pottery
In the late 19th century, China painting was a popular pastime for women in the United States. Pauline Jacobus founded a pottery studio called “Pauline Pottery” in 1883 that became a thriving business. Women were able to take on a central role in the developing art pottery movement and in turn led to increased education, employment and respect for many. Undergraduate Intern Laura Houston from The University of Wisconsin-Madison created “Behind the Brush: Women of the Pauline Pottery” which brings to light the untold stories of five employees of the Pauline Pottery as well as the story of its founder.
