“We are honored to partner with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation,” says Gene McGahan, vice president of sales and merchandising at RiverCeramic, in an interview with HOME ACCENTS TODAY, which broke the news.

“Frank Lloyd Wright viewed interior decorative pieces as important as structural elements in creating an integrated environment to produce, what he called, a beautiful life,” he adds. “By bringing back these pottery pieces designed in the late 1920s, we feel that we are keeping alive his ideas and timeless designs for current and future home owners.”

“Mr. Wright believed that beautiful objects could positively impact our lives,” says David Oates, director of licensing and retail at the foundation. “These distinctive and superbly crafted ceramic pieces are perfect for any home—from Arts and Crafts to midcentury to contemporary interiors. I am so pleased that RiverCeramic is bringing them back, especially as we start celebrating Wright’s innovation, design and impact on how we live today, during the 150th anniversary of his birth.”
