This Willa Cather Commemorative Frankoma plates are hand-crafted memorials to Nebraska's beloved writer, Willa Cather. A Willa Cather Foundation plow graces the front, along with an image of Cather's signature. The back reads "preserving the life, time, and works of Willa Cather. Visitors may see many of the places she commemorated in her works."

About Frankoma: Frankoma mines clay from near Sugar Loaf Hill in Oklahoma. The raw terra cotta is sorted and sifted to remove leaves and twigs. Each piece is unique as the special clay is poured or pressed into individual molds. The plates are then air-dried, washed, sanded, smoothed, glazed, and kiln-fired twice. It sometimes takes up to eight artisans to create a single plate.

Microwavable, oven proof, and dishwasher safe.

Willa Cather Foundation O Pioneers! by Willa Cather Willa Cather Foundation My Antonia by Willa Cather Willa Cather Foundation A Lost Lady by Willa Cather
O Pioneers! (1913) was Willa Cather's first great novel, and to many it remains her unchallenged masterpiece. No other work of fiction so faithfully conveys both the sharp physical realities and the mythic sweep of the transformation of the American frontier - and the transformation of the people who settled it. Cather's heroine is Alexandra Bergson, who arrives on the wind--blasted prairie of Hanover, Nebraska, as a girl and grows up to make it a prosperous farm. This archetypal success story is darkened by loss, and Alexandra's devotion to the land may come at the cost of love itself.

At a sophisticated pastoral and a prototype for later feminist novels, O Pioneers! is a work in which triumph is inextricably enmeshed with tragedy, a story of people who do not claim a land so much as they submit to it and, in the process, become greater than they were.

In this symphonically powerful and magnificently observed novel, Willa Cather created one of the most winning heroines in American fiction, a woman whose robust high spirits and calm, undemonstrative strength make her emblematic of the virtues Cather most admired in her country. Antonia Shimerda is the daughter of Bohemian immigrant parents struggling with the oceanic loneliness of life on the Nebraska prairie. Through the eyes of Jim Burden, her tutor and disappointed admirer, we follow Antonia from farm to town and through hardships both natural and human, surviving everything from poverty to a failed romance - and not only surviving, but triumphing.

In the end Antonia is exactly what Burden says she is: a woman who "had that something which fires the imagination, [a woman who] could stop... one's breath for a moment by a look or gesture that somehow revealed the meaning in common things."

To the people of Sweet Water, a fading railroad town on the Western plains, Mrs. Forrester is the resident aristocrat, at once gracious and comfortably remote. TO her aging husband, she is a treasure whose value increases as his powers fail. To Niel Herbert, who falls in lvoe with her as a boy and becomes her confidant as a man, Mrs. Forrester is by turns steadfast and faithless, dazzling and pathetic: a woman whose charm is intertwined with a terrifying vulnerability.

Willa Cather Foundation The Song of the Lark by Willa Cather Willa Cather Foundation One of Ours by Willa Cather Willa Cather Foundation Lucy Gayheart by Willa Cather
In this powerful portrait of the self-making of an artist, Willa Cather created one of her most extraordinary heroines. Thea Kronberg, a minister's daughter in a provincial Colorado town, seems destined from childhood for a place in the wider world. But as her path to the world stage leads her even farther from the humble town she can't forget and the man she can't afford to love, Thea learns that her exceptional musical talent and fierce ambition are not enough.

It is in the solitude of a tiny rick chamber high in the side of an Arizona cliff - "a cleft in the heart of the world" - that Thea comes face to face with her own dreams and desires, stripped clean by the haunting purity of the ruined cliff dwellings and inspired by the whisperings of their ancient dust. Here she finds the courage to seize her future and to use her gifts to catch "the shining, elusive element that is life itself - life hurrying past us and running away, too strong to stop, too sweet to lose." In prose as shimmering and piercingly true as the light in a desert canyon, Cather takes us into the heart of a woman coming to know her deepest self.

Claude Wheeler, the sensitive protagonist of this beautifully modulated novel, resembles a restless young son in the peculiarly American fairy tale. His fortune is ready-made for him, but he refuses to settle for it. Feeling alienated from his crass father and pious mother, all but rejection by a wife who reserves her ardor for missionary work, and dissatisfied with farming, Claude is an idealist without an ideal to cling to. It is only when his country enters the first World War that Claude finds what he has been searching for all his life.

In One of Ours, Willa Cather explores the destiny of a grandchild of pioneers, a young Nebraskan whose yearnings impel him toward a frontier bloodier and more distant than the one that vanished before his birth. In doing so, she creates a canny and extraordinarily vital portrait of an American psyche at once skeptical and romantic, restless and heroic.

Some people's lives are affected by what happens to their person or their property; but for others, fate is what happens to their feelings and their thoughts - that and nothing more." In this haunting 1935 novel, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of One of Ours performs a series of crystalline variations on the themes that preoccupy her greatest fiction: the impermanence of innocence, the opposition between prairie and city, provincial American values and world culture, and the grandeur, elation, and heartache that await a gifted young woman who leaves her small Nebraska town to pursue a life in art.

At the age of eighteen, Lucy Gayheart heads for Chicago to study music. She is beautiful and impressionable and ardent, and these qualities attract the attention of Clement Sebastian, an aging but charismatic singer who exercises all the tragic, sinister fascination of a man who has renounced life only to turn back to seize it one last time. Out of their doomed love affair - and Lucy's fatal estrangement from her origins - Willa Cather creates a novel that is as achingly lovely as a Schubert sonata.
