Arie Meaders Jar Dogwood Blossoms And Leaf Decoration, Base Inscribed

Arie Meaders Jar Dogwood Blossoms and Leaf Decoration, base inscribed "AM", worked White County, Georgia. The Jar has its original lid.

Size: Height 4 7/8 x 4 ¾” incised on the bottom "AM". Guarantee all original and as it came out of the kiln in the 1970’s era. Her work is sought after by the advance Meaders Family collator and her pieces are not often seen on the market.

A short History for those who are not familiar with the early Meaders history:

The Meaders family of Mossy Creek, Georgia, is probably one of the most prominent folk art families in the country and certainly the most prominent in Georgia. Cheever Meaders' father, John Meaders, founded the pottery in Mossy Creek in White County, northeast Georgia, in 1892. He started the pottery, actually, with hired help, because he wasn't a potter himself. And then he had them teach his sons how to pot. And Cheever eventually took over the pottery in 1920. And Cheever went through the whole Depression selling pottery there in Mossy Creek. Now, what happened was a highway put through right next to the pottery and he started getting tourist business. So, he had one of these journeymen potters teach him how to make face jugs. And he knew they weren't usable, but he found he made

more money off of face jugs. His wife, Arie, joined him in the shop. Now, one of their sons' name was Lanier Meaders. The Smithsonian did a documentary film in

the 1960s on Lanier and his pottery, and suddenly the pottery became famous. Cheever died in 1967, and Arie kept going, and these grapes are one of

Arie's signatures that she did. She Also did the Dogwood decoration, I do not think she ever made a pot. She died 1989 at the age of 92.

Arie Meaders, White County, Georgia, 1897-1989.

Sorry I omitted this paragraph in the listing:

The Dogwood petals, the one at the very bottom and the one to the right have a tiny little peck where tiny tip blew off in the kiln, probably due to moisture in the clay. I took the Jar in the sun and under a loop and looked at it and it has glaze over that tiny area. So this happen in the firing of the piece. Please view my images for a better view of the condition. Feel free to ask any questions you may have if I missed something.
