"By now, it should be obvious that we were drawn to crystalline glazes. So much so that Diana included some information about its technology in her article for Tiller, Vol I No. 4, March-April 1983, "Teco Pottery and the Green Phenomenon." in which she defined the matte crystallines. We knew little about Clifton examples but purchased this because we knew it was rare. The Clifton Art Pottery of Newark, NJ was in business for only a few years, opening in 1905, and ceasing production of art pottery in 1911, when the company turned to making tiles."
