Artus Van Briggle was born in 1869 and passed away from tuberculosis at a very young age in 1904. He was an American artist of Dutch descent and was world renown in Europe as a painter and received highest honors for his works. In 1899 he left Rookwood where he was a celebrated artist and in 1901 he opened Van Briggle. He created and perfected satin matte glazes in beautiful colors, ie:matte blue glaze. His media consisted of earth clays, feldspars, oxides and the orange flames from a kiln. His creations were that of beauty, elegance and nature blended into one. His works are still highly collectible and are widely sought after by collectors.
