50/50 Cable Years
HMM 2 and HMM 003 (Maker: Freida Hammers) are examples of in-laying glazes. The design patterns are incised into the wet clay. Subsequently, the various colored glazes can be laid into the designated areas. The designs reflect the strong Art Deco influence that was prevalent across the country at the time. The vase with flying ducks is on loan from Tony Hanson. (See Case #3-Bottom for an explanation of the glazing process.)
HLD 025 (Maker: Hildegarde Fried Dreps) and accompanying pieces, have a graduated glaze color from top to bottom. This design component was frequently used in the Arts and Crafts movement during the first half of the 20th century.
