David Meaders Face Jug with Human Teeth

Circa 2000: David Meaders (1951-2020), son of Georgia folk art potters Reggie and Flossie Meaders, grandson of pioneer folk art potter Cheever Meaders, and nephew of master folk art potter Lanier Meaders, is known to have made several gutsy stoneware face jugs that include his own teeth, and we believe this is one of them. David also trademarked the Meaders Pottery name, and this 10.5" tall alkaline glazed jug is inscribed “David Meaders” and “Meaders Pottery is a reg. trade name” on the bottom. This is a rare and superlative example of the late Lula, Georgia, potter’s work in excellent conditon with no chips, cracks, or repairs.
