Nicodemus Pottery- (1940s - 1980s) (Turquoise, Ivory, Green, Mottle, Pussy Willow, Golden Yellow) Chester Nicodemus was an art professor and potter who taught at the Columbus (Ohio) Art School.  He quickly made a name for himself by commissioning sculptures, and other works of art.  In 1941 he left the teaching profession to undertake designing and producing his own creations. These beautiful works of art were made using warm Ohio red clay which contained a large NICODEMUS POTTERY LAYING CAT BACKSTAMPpercentage of iron. The glazes were applied so that the red hues of the clay would show through. He called the pottery made from this process Ferro-stone.  Nicodemus is well known for his adorable animal and human figurines, but he also produced Christmas ornaments, plates, ashtrays, teapots, cups, vases, ornaments, bookends,  flower frogs, and commemorative items for clubs.  Nicodemus pottery is usually incised with the trademark "Nicodemus."  Many of the animals are found with an additional "E. J." incised in the bottom. Ellen Jennings, an apprentice / student of Chester's designed many of  his small animal figures.  She was paid a royalty for her work.  Nicodemus pottery is still popular today in the collectible market place.
