"Another glazed crystalline vase, this one made with white clay by Walter Stephen in 1939. Walter Benjamin Stephen ran the Pisgah Forest Pottery in Skyland, North Carolina near Asheville from 1920 to 1961. From his small pottery with a wood-fired kiln and one or two assistants, he experimented with the latest techniques described in his library on ceramics and was able to produce crystalline wares "as elegant as those made by larger manufactories."
