Nora Ellen Dyer (1871-1950) made this 10 5/8″ x 2.75″ t. wheel-thrown bowl. Glazed in a uranium-based mottled orange, which at Cowan Pottery was called Oriental Red (introduced at Cowan in 1930).

Excellent condition. Ohio buyers must pay 8% sales tax.
Mrs. Dyer taught ceramics at the Cleveland School (now Institute) of Art. She was the faculty member who helped the department, by studying with Charles Fergus Binns, make the transition from focusing on china painting toward a focus on studio pottery. Cowan Pottery’s glaze formulas were made available to the school after this concern closed at the end of 1931.
