Ohio stoneware has really come into its own over the last decade or so. A large state absolutely filled with potters, Ohio's stoneware shows a large variety of influences, as potters who had worked in the eastern states migrated westward looking for work or a new start. The vast number of stoneware potters working in Ohio have left a lot of room for research into barely-documented or even currently unknown potteries, whose work surfaces on a fairly regular basis. Other Midwestern stoneware tends to take on a similar appearance to that made in the Buckeye State. (Also see our many Anna Pottery Highlights, made by the Kirkpatrick Brothers in Anna, Illinois.)
