Pigeon Forge Pottery, founded by Douglas Ferguson in 1946 at the foothills of Tennessee's Great Smoky Mountains, produced hand crafted pieces for more than 50 years. The family-run pottery ceased operation in 2000 following Ferguson's passing.
Each piece of Pigeon Forge Pottery was molded or thrown by hand from local red or gray clays, and finished with glazes made from native wood ash and mineral compounds, giving the pieces a unique quality and depth of color.
This delightful bud vase is finished in Pigeon Forge's desirable "Crater" glaze, a densely mottled and subtly textured "volcanic" finish of brown and white.
Condition is superb, free from chipping, cracking, crazing or restoration. Marked with hand incised "Pigeon Forge Pottery".
