Douglas Ferguson, owner of
Pigeon Forge Pottery, near Gat-
linburg, Tennessee, has contribu-
uted twenty pieces of pottery to
the new library. The donation
includes both lamps and purely
decorative pieces.
Mr. Ferguson, a 1933 gradu-
T\^A Ceramic Research Labora
tories in 1937, he visited an old
water mill on Little Pigeon
River. It was full of dirt dauber
nests. Firing some of these, Mr,
Ferguson found the clay excellent
for pottery and located his Pottery
nearby. Local clay is still used to
a great extent.
All designs and creative works
are done by Pigeon Forge crafts
men, utilizing native subjects and
materials. Decorations are hand-
painted with a liquid clay called
“slip”. Glazes are made from
minerals collected in the Great
Smoky Mountains. The mixing
and firing of glazes is a difficult
and complicated art taking }Tars
to learn. Pigeon Forge pottery is
famous for its beautiful and un
usual glazes.
]\Ir. Ferguson is leaving Oc
tober 18, for a two months tour
of Holland, Denmark, Sweden,
Norway and Scotland. He will
studj'^ pottery making in these
countries and will deliver a num
ber of lectures.
