Considered one of the leading mid-century-modern ceramicists - Francis Joseph von Tury (1901 - 1992) was a fourth generation Hungarian potter from Transylvania. After emigrating to the US in 1929 he invented a unique "single firing" process for porcelain which is now commonly used across the ceramics industry. Quickly recognized for his talent - he mentored generations of American potters while he continued to develop unique glazes and production techniques. Throughout his career he maintained both an atelier studio in Metuchen New Jersey along with mass production partnerships with several major commercial firms. His work is included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Smithsonian Institute.
