Georgette Ore's Rascal Ware comes courtesy of Don Pilcher's wild imagination. The 60-piece exhibit of clay dishes and plates at the Canton Museum of Art is the product of the craftsman's fictional Rascal Ware Pottery Company.

Pilcher has even gone so far as to write a book about his fake identity. As the story goes, she's a lifelong bachelorette, who toils away in her clay shop with five male potters. "Some days I look up from the wheel," she says in the book, "and all I see are bricks and dicks."
