Howard Pierce Porcelain
Claremont, California - Joshua Tree, California
late 1930's - 1994

Welcome to our wonderful world of Howard Pierce Porcelains

Howard Pierce began working in Southern California in 1936. In 1945, he opened his own pottery studio in Claremont.

He moved to Joshua Tree, California in 1968 where he continued designing and producing beautiful porcelain until he died in 1994 leaving a legacy of wonderful animal & human figurines, some unique jewelry pieces, vases & other decorative pieces.

Most pieces are marked, ink stamp, impressed and/or labels, although in sets often the smaller pieces aren't marked.  You will also find personally signed pieces of these beautiful porcelains, when people purchased a treasure in his studio he often signed and dated it.
