Ceramics in America 2009


Now in its ninth year of publication, Ceramics in America is considered the journal of record for historical ceramic scholarship in the American context. The 2009 volume presents new research related to the rich and varied earthenware production in the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Moravian settlements of Bethabara and Salem, North Carolina. Setting a new standard for American ceramic studies, this transdisciplinary effort draws on archaeology, art history, social history, religion, ceramic technology, and many other areas of inquiry resulting in a substantively revised history of this much-admired North Carolina pottery tradition. Many examples of highly decorative slipware and intriguing figural bottles are illustrated for the first time with color photography by Gavin Ashworth.
