Who: Mary Louise McLaughlin (September 29, 1847 – January 19, 1939) and Clara Chipman Newton (October 26, 1848 – December 8, 1936)
Mary Louise McLaughlin was an American ceramic painter and studio potter from Cincinnati, Ohio, and the main local competitor of Maria Longworth Nichols Storer, who founded Rookwood Pottery. Like Storer, McLaughlin was one of the originators of the art pottery movement that swept the United States. In 1877 she worked out how to paint the porcelain under the glaze, and consequently became the first artist in the United States to implement the underglaze technique. Eventually other artists began utilizing this same technique, and in 1879 McLaughlin founded the Cincinnati Pottery Club along with Clara Chipman Newton and others. Mary Louise McLaughlin was born to a wealthy family of Cincinnati, her father being the owner of a successful dry goods company in the city. Her older brother was architect James W. McLaughlin. In spite of her independence, McLaughlin was always quick to admit that she had invaluable assistance from her companion and housekeeper of 47 years, Margaret "Maggie" Hickey. Hickey was an Irish immigrant who joined her sister in the United States and began work for McLaughlin around 1885. Maggie was about 20 years old at the time. While she lacked formal education, her natural intelligence was considerable. She was soon able to assist McLaughlin in every aspect of the porcelain process. By the winter of 1898-1899 she was doing all the casting of the ware, and by the fall of 1901 she was also managing all the firing. at the time of Hickey's death in 1932, she was still working for McLaughlin. In 1894, shortly after her brother George died, McLaughlin moved to 6 Oak Street near Gilbert Avenue, and by 1897 she was renting a house at 2558 Eden Avenue in Mount Auburn, not far from her brother James's home. It was at her Eden Avenue address that she decided to make porcelain. In 1912 McLaughlin moved from 2558 Eden Avenue in the suburb of Mount Auburn to her final address at 4011 Sherwood Avenue in Madisonville, another Cincinnati suburb. She designed the house, and it was built by her architect brother James. The simple plan, which placed all living needs on the ground floor, was ideal for the artist who was then 65 years old. On Mar. 4, 1923, Louise's brother, James McLaughlin, died at the age of 88 at his retirement home in New York City. His obituaries hailed him as one of Cincinnati's most important architects. Margaret Hickey died in 1932. In 1934 Miss Grace W. Hazard, then 65 years old, assumed Hickey's position. Hazard always affectionately referred to McLaughlin as "Ma." McLaughlin's will was contested for years by various members of the family and by Hazard, her last companion. Clara Chipman Newton was an American artist best known as a china painter. In 1879 she became one of the founding members and the secretary of the Cincinnati Pottery Club along with Mary Louise McLaughlin, who was to become a close friend.
