Summary

Thanks to the U.S. Northwest's support of the arts, Pioneer Porcelain Enamel Co. has the distinct advantage of combining porcelain enamel's capabilities with the artist's imagination. The industry offers the artist a new medium; the artist provides the industry new technologies (from glass, ceramics, printmaking, painting, photography, and sculpting), a new vocabulary, and perhaps even an appreciation for the artistic merit of black specks.
