o two pieces are everdecorated with the same head. Perhaps one of the most costly of American wares is theopalescent inlaid ware. In making this, the gold is laid overthe clay. Then the vase is splattered with a pure white min-eral, through which the gold shows. The decorations offlowers and conventional designs are inlaid in gold. One does not, in these days of beautiful pottery, need tobe urged to take an interest in this beautiful art. Our modernpotters are making more and more beautiful work daily, workbeautiful in form, fine in texture and original in decoration.Moreover, we have all the beautiful pottery of earlier periodsto see and enjoy, and the enjoyment is not the less becausemuch of the best of it has found permanent homes in themuseums. On the contrary, this is a distinct advantage, sincemany more people are able to delight in it. The making ofmodern pottery is, however, becoming more and more an artand less a manufacture. The advantages of this change aremanv and obvious.
