Biography Sara Sax
Ms. Sax joined the decorating staff at Rookwood Pottery* in 1896 and worked there until 1931. Peacocks and peacock feathers were common decorating motifs for Rookwood vases decorated by Sara Sax.
Ms. Sax’s French Red vases are absolutely exceptional and rank as my favorite glaze line. For some unknown reason, Rookwood’s French Red was used almost exclusively by Sara Sax. However, Ms. Sax is recognized as having mastered many of the Rookwood glaze lines.
Ms. Sax also has the distinction of being at the forefront of the Art Nouveau*, Art Deco*, and Arts and Crafts Movements* at Rookwood Pottery.
