The use of ceramics by humans has been chronicled since our earliest recorded history. Some of the very first artifacts in the archaeological record are fired mud ceramic vessels. Fast forward tens of thousands of years into the future: today we are surrounded by ceramics, from Chia Pets to ceramic chef’s knives.

Adam Rose isn’t someone you would imagine as having been a policeman. He’s copresident of Rose Associates, the real-estate firm that has provided his family with the means to become prominent New York philanthropists—their name adorns the Rose Main Reading Room of the New York Public Library, the Rose Theater at Lincoln Center, and the Rose Center for Earth and Space at the American Museum of Natural History. When he was a student at Yale, however, Rose served as an auxiliary trooper with the Connecticut State Police. In 1991, while attending a meeting of gay police officers, he met Peter McQuillan, a sergeant with the New York City Police Department. They’ve been together ever since.
