  • "Good design is for everyone." -- Russel Wright

    In 1939, visionary industrial designer Russel Wright fused modern aesthetics with domestic functionality... and the American dining room was changed forever.

    Manufactured until 1959 by the Steubenville Pottery Company of Ohio, Wright's innovative line of "American Modern" ceramic dinnerware went on to became the most successful in U.S.history with over 250 million pieces sold.

    Today, in an exclusive partnership with Wright's daughter Ann, Bauer Pottery carefully recreates select pieces from the original line, including this iconic Granite pitcher featuring Wright's trademark curvy silhouettes, rounded corners, and vintage color.

    The original Bauer Pottery Co. thrived in Los Angeles from 1909-1962. Revived in 1999 just down the road from the original factory, and using highly collectable vintage pieces to craft new molds… Bauer's new generation of dinnerware, beverageware and serving ware continues to captivate artists and collectors worldwide.

    "Russel Wright 'American Modern' is handmade exclusively by Bauer Pottery of Southern California. We are proud to carry on this distinctive, classic collection."Janek Boniecki, Owner
