\"American Cameo\" pottery was a highly prized art pottery produced by Asheville native Walter B. Stephen at his Pisgah Forest Pottery. The cameo style of pottery uses raised paintings applied with a sharp brush and then glazed. Stephen's work was well known throughout the United States before his death in 1961. The art form is not being lost, as other pottery artists are producing cameo work. Marjorie Pittman and Judy Petrie produce \"Carolina Cameo\" in their Catawba County studios, while Rodney Leftwich produces cameo pottery at his Asheville workshop.
