Pigeon Forge Pottery a product of the southern mountains.
Pigeon Forge Pottery is mostly marked and often signed by the artists.
Signature black bear figures and hand-painted dogwood items (as well as many other items made through the years at the pottery) appear to have traveled far and wide with folks returning home from vacations in the Smokies. Various owl and raccoon shapes are also found among the woodland figural shapes created by Pigeon Forge Pottery. Closed following the death of owner-founder, Douglas Ferguson, Pigeon Forge Pottery is becoming highly sought-after by collectors. Ferguson, in his later years, was widely known for the development and application of beautiful glazes.
