East Liverpool, Ohio, though advertised as “The Pottery Center of the World,” has produced very little in the way of art pottery, no matter how broadly one defines the term, concentrating instead on dinnerware. One undeservedly forgotten East Liverpool potter who did produce ware falling under the rubric of “art pottery” is Marion Shiveley, who threw an excellent grade of swirlware for some twenty years prior to his death in 1962.
Includes images of Marion Shiveley and images of his swirlware.
