Fiestaware Pottery History
Fiestaware has an enthusiastic following. Even if you're not an admirer of vintage, you've probably heard of Fiestaware Pottery.
Created by the Homer Laughlin Company in 1936, it quickly became a popular household brand of dinnerware. The original collection consisted of 34 pieces. The dishes were available in bright, bold hues, and made to mix and match. The inspiration and design for this popular pottery came from Frederick Hurten Rhead who wanted a fresh, contemporary, Art Decor inspired dinnerware, with bold geometric shapes and bright colors. One of his influences was the colorful, vibrant hues in pottery of the Mediterranean region.
