Laura Anne Fry was an accomplished wood carver and ceramics and china painter. She made significant contributions to the development of the Art Pottery Movement in America. At Cincinnati’s Rookwood Pottery, and later at Lonhuda Pottery Company, she developed and taught technically innovative glazing techniques, for which she received patents. When her glazing methods were used at Rookwood Pottery after she left the company, she sued for patent infringement and lost.
