Description


The 2019 of Ceramics in America will feature groundbreaking discoveries for students of American ceramic history. New analytic information about the manufacture of hard-paste porcelain, also in the Philadelphia context, will be of special interest to students of American porcelain production. Reconstructive drawings of two of America's most important potteries and their kilns are illustrated and discussed: the William Rogers Pottery of Yorktown, Virginia (ca. 1720-1745), and the massive stoneware kilns of Abner Landrum's Pottersville factory in Edgefield, South Carolina (ca. 1818-1840). Other articles examine topics of American stoneware, including the distinctive eighteenth-century stoneware of Boston and Charlestown, Massachusetts. The journal concludes with a beautifully illustrated two-part presentation on clay tobacco pipes made in the Chesapeake region of America between 1640 and 1660, highlighting the pipe maker's art and the multicultural circumstance of their manufacture and use.
