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.
