He sold the pottery from in front of his home near Hollister through the 1930s. Horine also taught others to make the pottery and helped establish several "pottery plants" from Oregon to Florida.One of Horine's pottery making sites was at the Desert Mission, a social services center established by the First Presbyterian Church in Phoenix, Arizona for desert dwellers afflicted with tuberculosis. The pottery, referred to as "Mission Craft", was made between 1935 and 1939. This booklet describes Harold Horine's creation and development of his cement ComoCraft/Ozark Roadside pottery business in Missouri and his trip to Phoenix in 1935 to teach the craft to consumptives at the mission in Phoenix. The pottery was produced and marketed in the Phoenix area for four years through early 1939. Hand illustrated notes on the processes used to make the pottery written by one of the Mission’s instructors are appended to the report. The booklet is thoroughly researched and footnoted. It was written with the encouragement, cooperation, and approval of Harold Horine’s son, Frank Horine, and includes eight black and white photos in twenty-four pages of text and four color photos on the covers. Ten dollars of each sale will be donated to the Sunnyslope Historical Society, 737 E. Hatcher, Phoenix, AZ 85021, home of the Desert Mission.Ships first class USPS. Condition: New
