May Heimlich Bowl

no.042 2011-08-01 rev

May Heimlich made this covered bowl using the Broadmoor Pottery process from its closed Denver operation.

The glaze and lacquered bottom are familiar to Broadmoor collectors. The pink was produced at Colorado Springs but mostly later in Denver.

Broadmoor seldom made lidded or carved pots like May's bowl.

This example was incised by May Heimlich for her sister Frances. May co-founded Lakewood Pottery and used the old Broadmoor process and molds in the 1940s. She later became known in the Denver area for her carved and decorated work.
