  • This decorative bowl glazed in turquoise on the outside and rose/peach on the inside was made by W.B. Stephen of Pisgah Forest Pottery in 1935. It is stamped on the bottom with a cameo of a potter and "PISGAH FOREST 1935." Stephen made a new marking plate every year from 1927-1954, so that the gradual development of Pisgah Forest Pottery can be charted over time. Walter B. Stephen (1875-1961) also known as W.B. Stephen, founded Pisgah Forest Pottery around 1926 in Arden, N.C. Stephen's pottery was known for its unusual shapes and unique glazes, such as this turquoise glaze. This bowl was donated to the Mountain Heritage Center in memory of Jacques and Juliana Busbee, founders of Jugtown Pottery, Seagrove, North Carolina.
