Howard Pierce

Howard Pierce began working in Southern California in 1936. In 1945, he opened a pottery in Claremont. He moved to Joshua Tree in 1968 and continued making pottery until 1991. His contemporary-looking figurines are popular with collectors. Though most pieces are marked with his name, smaller items from his sets often were not marked. Pierce used concrete, plastic, pewter, brass, and plaster as materials for his pieces, but his main material was porcelain.
