The past is the beginning of the beginning and all that is and has been is but the twilight of the dawn. H.G. Wells

{HISTORY}

Based in West Virginia, the Edwin M. Knowles China Company teamed up with celebrated American artist Erwin Kalla in the 1950's to produce this elegant Dawn Rose pattern.  By this point in history, Edwin Knowles had been long established in the ceramics industry (having started in 1900) and Erwin Kalla (1925-2005) was an artistic whirlwind, who worked in paint and sculpture mediums.

Born near Pittsburgh, PA  Erwin began his design career in college at Carnegie Institute of Technology and the Cranbrook Academy of Art where he developed his own unique aesthetic that was described as elegant and understated. He designed several patterns for Edwin Knowles exclusively which included a variety of florals and geometric shapes.
