This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A designer of Rookwood Pottery*, Laura Fry invented a mouth a mouth-blown atomizer, which dispersed colored slip over the surface of pottery for Rookwood. There was litigation over the patent for it, so she took her invention to Lonhuda Pottery, a competitor.

She was an honorary member of Cincinnati Pottery Club and was also a woodcarver*. Her grandfather and father, Henry Lindley and William Henry Fry, were actually the woodcarvers for Rookwood Estate.

Fry was educated at McMicken School of Design*, the Art Academy of Cincinnati* and also in France and England.
