I had not known about Glidden Pottery until I read about it in the Fong Chow interview. It piqued my interest and I thought you might like to know more, too. Listed are links about Glidden Parker, Glidden Pottery, and Fong Chow, his work and his connections with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, gifts and curated works. In addition, there is a short video featuring Glidden pottery. The camera work is a bit shaky, but it still gives you an idea of the work produced…very nice pieces indeed. While Glidden Pottery was very influential with the American scene, little information can be found about it. The one book I found, Glidden Pottery, remains out of print. It is written by Dr. Margaret Carney, who interviewed Fong Chow. If anyone wanted to take the time, an updated retrospective would be welcome! One of the most interesting tidbits about this story is that Glidden Pottery seconds made up the inventory of the first merchandise offered by a company we’ve all come to know, Pottery Barn. Two truckloads of seconds were sold in a barn, hence the name.
