Pottery Works: Potteries Of New York State's Capital District And Upper Hudson Region
This book presents in detail the history of earthenware and stoneware potteries that operated in the Capital District and Upper Hudson region of New York State from the seventeenth to the early twentieth centuries. Potteries in Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga, and Washington countries are covered.The ceramic pieces illustrated here are not only compared to one another, but to ceramics manufactured throughout the Northeast. Special attention is paid to both unusual ceramic forms (differing from the often-seen jugs and crocks) and to Rockingham and other unusual glazes and finishes. In addition, information on the origins of American art pottery in decorative earthenware produced by German immigrant potters in Albany, Sandy Hill, and Fort Edward in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries is included.
