The 2019 volume of Ceramics in America features exciting new discoveries in the field of American ceramics studies, from an early example of Chinese porcelain found in the New World to previously undocumented green-glazed earthenware made in early-nineteenth-century Philadelphia. 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. Of special note, 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.
