Burlon B. Craig (American, 1914 - 2002)

Burlon Craig probably made this vessel while working for the Reinhardt Brothers Pottery during the summer of 1936. Ten years later, when Burlon returned to the Catawba Valley after fighting in World War II, he bought the Reinhardt kiln and pottery shop to start his own business.
