Mochaware is a decorative pottery made in England,
France and North America in the late 1700's and early 1800's.
Though inexpensive and utilitarian when made, it is now a very
rare and sought-after artifact. Shelburne Museum's collection
of Mochaware is the largest public collection anywhere.
My own visit to see the collection in 2013 left my head spinning
with its beauty, shapes, designs, and colors, and I decided then
to create a series of abstract art quilts celebrating Mochaware.
