Turnbull then began to acquire artists to design art for their tableware items. In 1939 Turnbull contracted with the well-known artist Rockwell Kent, to produce 3 different designs for Vernon Kilns pottery pieces. One of the designs was Salamina which was based on a 1935 Novel by Rockwell Kent. The novel is about Kent’s visits to Greenland 1929-1931.
