When selecting American-made ceramics for his interiors, Frank Lloyd Wright gravitated toward geometric silhouettes in muted matte glazes such as those produced by the Grueby Faience Company. Popular among early twentieth-century American Arts and Crafts enthusiasts, Grueby’s earthenware pieces and architectural tiles were inspired by Japanese forms and glazed using French techniques. This vase, while not original to the room, is similar to others found in Wright interiors. Wright often designed high shelves around the walls of a room for the display of ceramics and other decorative objects.
