The Vellum glaze was introduced in 1904 and was a particularly popular addition to the various glazes offered by Rookwood. It was regularly used until 1948. The light colored clay was used underneath a coating of pale blue. The popular images of landscapes, birds and plants were given an out of focus appearance by the soft glaze that many people found appealing.

An additional type of Vellum glaze was also added in the 1920s. It is often also referred to as Vellum but may also be referred to as double vellum. The process of creating these pots was to fire an unglazed pot then coated with a Vellum glaze before it was decorated over the top of the glaze, given another Vellum coat before it was fired a second time.

The first is an 8" tall vase that was decorated by Carl Schmidt and not only presents as a very attractive looking vase but is very representative of the type of vellum glazing that made them so popular.

The second vase has been decorated by Edith Noonan and was made in 1908. It stands 6" tall and features hand painted daisies.

The last of the three vases was decorated by Lorinda Epply in 1909 and also measures 6" tall. It is a classical vase from the arts & crafts period and a great example of the style.
