- About the artist
Lorinda Epply (1874 – 1951) was an American ceramicist and weaver. She was professionally active in Cincinnati, Ohio. She attended the Cincinnati Art Academy and Columbia University in New York, where she studied ceramics.
She worked at Rookwood Pottery in Cincinnati from 1904 to 1948. She created some of Rookwood’s most individualised work (with William Hentschel) in the late 1920s (with others at the pottery, she invented new glazes and types of ornamentation).
