Ceramics in America 2019


The 2019 of Ceramics in America will feature ground-breaking discoveries for students of American ceramic history. Of special note will be the discussion of green-glazed earthenware produced by Philadelphia entrepreneur David Sexias in 1817. Other articles will examine early American porcelain and slipware in the Philadelphia context. The story of an extremely rare early eighteenth century Dutch “black delft” teapot found at Drayton Hall in Charleston, South Carolina will be of particular interest as well. Other topics include American stoneware, seventeenth-century Chesapeake tobacco pipes, and a rare nineteenth-century Southern-made stoneware ring bottle associated with Dr. Peter Davis of Columbia, South Carolina, a practicing root doctor and conjurer.
