This is an unusual vase by Pigeon Forge sculptor Douglas Ferguson. A traditionally shaped vase shape is topped with a curved and tapered top half, with holes at the top which have been painted with stipples and drips of brown to evoke a resemblance to owl faces, one on either side. The four holes serve as a sort of flower frog for a floral arrangement.

The unusual texture of the tapered clay top appears to have been pressed with a piece of leather or other rough surface; the base is a cream to tan glaze, perfectly smooth. The effect is attractive and varied, giving a different appearance from each angle.

Signed on base: Pigeon Forge Pottery along one side of the rim, and D. Ferguson (founder of Pigeon Forge Pottery, which flourished 1947-1999) on the other. Measures 10” tall x 3 ¼” wide x 4 ¼” at base. Probably from the 1950s to 1960s. No flaws, damage or repairs. A droll and whimsical piece, perfect for a mid-century living space.
