Whether working independently, in artisans’ colonies, or at schools and universities such as Newcomb College in New Orleans, women made a significant contribution to the Arts and Crafts movement at the turn of the nineteenth century. Though the pots produced at Newcomb were thrown and fired by a man, Joseph Meyer, the distinctive naturalistic decoration that won praise from the critics was always painted by the female students.
