The Potteries of Trenton Society in partnership with the New Jersey State Museum and the Trenton Museum Society is pleased to present its 11th annual spring symposium. This year's event will explore the life and work of sculptor Isaac Broome, the first sculptor to work in the American ceramics industry.
Although perhaps best known for his famous Baseball vase created for Ott & Brewer's display at the Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia in 1876, Broome also made other models for that display, and he was a designer, modeler and manufacturer of tiles in Trenton and Brooklyn. The Baseball vase is on long-term display in the State Museum exhibition Pretty Big Things Stories of New Jersey History
