Item:202644418281For the first time, the history of the colorful cement pottery known as Ozark RoadsideTourist Pottery is available to collectors. The pottery was patented and manufactured by inventor Harold Horine in the early 1930s as Como Craft Pottery and sold from in front of his home outside of Hollister, Missouri. OzarkTourist Pottery was made at several locations, from the Midwest to the Oregon coast, by entrepreneurs who had been instructed in the manufacturing techniques by Horine. The success of the pottery was attested to by a display at the 1939 New York World’s Fair, Horine’s appearance in National Geographic Magazine, and a 1990s revival. The Mission Craft Pottery Project also tells the story of Harold’s trip to Phoenix, Arizona in 1935 to set up a pottery plant at the Sunnyslope Desert Mission, a social services facility for tuberculosis sufferers living in tents and shacks on the desert. Hand illustrated notes on making the pottery written by one of the Mission’s instructors are included in 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.��Condition:New
