Huronia Pottery, Meaford, Ontario

Shown are several examples of Huronia and Frankoma (Norman and then Sapulpa, Oklahoma) illustrating glaze similarities.

There are additional similarities between Huronia and Seagrove, North Carolina (especially A.R. Cole) glazes.  It is known that Frankoma glaze chemists visited the Seagrove area as early as 1930 and continued the visits well into the 1960's.  It is believed Tom Hrcek, the founder of Huronia, visited the Seagrove, North Carolina area at length in the early 1970's, late 1960's.
