Awesome salt and pepper design from the Lazy Bones line by famous Oklahoma art pottery Frankoma Pottery. The Lazy Bones pattern was the only set to include a salt and pepper in one fluid design. On the salt side you have a double diamond configuration for the holes, and on the pepper side a 'p'. The white sand glaze varies from piece to piece in intensity, In this piece it is very white with just a hint of the red Sapulpa clay under the glaze.
Frankoma Pottery was founded by pottery teacher at the University Oklahoma, John Frank. Frank discovered the clay of the region to be rich and distinctive. His love of making pottery outshone his desire to teach and he soon left his position to become a potter full time, founding his own pottery works. Frank was inspired by themes of the Southwest, and his designs reflect that strongly.
John Frank died in 1973, and the pottery was taken over by his daughter, and then other owners. It has struggled over the years, but continued, off and on, to make outstanding wares based on Frank's designs.
Early Frankoma was made with a light Ada clay, and later with a brick red Sapulpa clay.
CONDITION: Excellent with no chips, cracks, or nicks. Lovely smooth finish.
SIZE: About 3 1/2 inches tall.
