Join us for George Hibben discussing Rookwood Pottery.  

The Rookwood Pottery Company is located in an 88,000 square foot production facility in the bustling Over-the-Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio. This company was first founded in 1880 by pioneering artist Maria Longworth-Nichols. She quickly built the company into a world-renowned ceramics studio, attracting the attention of famed artists and ceramicists all over the world.

Today, Rookwood continues to build upon its rich heritage and creates the highest quality Art Pottery and Architectural Tile in the United States. With a team of just over 70 employees, The Rookwood Pottery Company is committed to providing our patrons with a one-of-a-kind luxury experience and product. 

After the presentation, representatives from Rookwood Pottery will be demonstrating and discussing Rookwood Pottery until 1pm.

George Hibben serves as Rookwood’s Resident Historian and Specialty Sales Representative. Since 2008, Hibben has led tours of the pottery for dignitaries, clients and community organizations, while also working alongside artists to bring custom hand-thrown pieces to life. An avid collector himself, Hibben began acquiring Rookwood pieces over 30 years ago. His deep knowledge of the historic pottery has led him to write several articles for Prosit, The Journal of Stein Collectors International, and The Journal of the American Art Pottery Association. A lifelong resident of Cincinnati, outside of Rookwood, Hibben continues to follow his passion for pottery by throwing his own beer steins.
