Samuel Propst trained in the pottery shop of his father, Jacob, and then partnered with his brother-in-law, Jim Lynn. Samuel originated the swirlware technique, in which light and dark clays were turned together on the wheel, creating a swirled effect. The Reinhardts, Hiltons, and other Catawba potters produced swirlware as well.
