About University of North Dakota (UND) Pottery

UND, University of North Dakota Pottery InformationThe earliest known examples of pottery produced at the University of North Dakota were produced in 1904. In 1910, Margaret Cable became the ceramic department head at the University. Ms. Cable became the most recognized artist in North Dakota pottery history. Other recognized artists include Julia Mattson, Flora Huckfield, Freida Hammers, and Margaret Pachl. With the retirement of Margaret Cable and Flora Huckfield in the 1949, University of North Dakota pottery production for resale dramatically reduced.

The prairie motif examples of North Dakota pottery remain among the most desirable pieces. Much UND Pottery is marked with the cobalt blue University of North Dakota seal and signed by the artist. In addition, some examples of UND Pottery are dated.
