  • Frederick Walrath was born in 1871 grew up in the small town in upstate New York. He was a teacher until 1901 when he enrolled in the first class of the New York State School of Clay-Working and Ceramics at Alfred University under director Charles Fergus Binns. Walrath attended for three years with Binns as his mentor, who instructed him on every aspect of making ceramics. While a student, he exhibited his work as part of Alfred University’s display at the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition and received a bronze medal. Walrath’s early works often featured carved designs, but over time he developed a style all his own. He did a brief stint at Grueby Pottery, prior to accepting the position of professor of modeling and pottery at the Mechanics Institute in Rochester, New York where he stayed for ten years. He left the Mechanics Institute in 1918 to take a job as the ceramic chemist at the Newcomb College Pottery in New Orleans. Sadly, he died just three years later in 1921 after falling ill while on summer leave, cutting short what would surely have been a long and illustrious career.
