Darlene Hurst Dommel offers this history on Rosemeade Pottery:
”Rosemeade pottery has become a popular collectible today because its creator Laura Taylor Hughes chose subjects which continually fascinate people–animals birds fish–and modeled authentic characterizations of their living counterparts. These innovative designs were then accurately hand painted in nature’s vivid coloring.
Laura Taylor combined education experience and creative skill. Educated at UND Taylor was a student and assistant to nationally known director Margaret Cable. After a short period of making Dickota pottery at the Dickinson Clay Products Company Laura Taylor was appointed state supervisor of the North Dakota Works Administration (WPA).
An opportunity to demonstrate pottery making at the 1939 New York World’s Fair changed Laura Taylor’s life as she met Robert J. Hughes zealous booster of state enterprise. Together they founded the Wahpeton Pottery Company in January 1940 and married three years later.
Many of Laura Taylor’s naturalistic designs reflected the native flora and fauna of her North Dakota farm childhood. A wide range of other products included place souveniers human forms functional items and advertising pieces. Observing trends Taylor met the needs and wishes of the public. The company name was changed to Rosemeade Potteries in 1953 for better name recognition and remained successful while many other companies of that era did not survive.”
