The 2017 volume of Ceramics in America contains the final contribution from Ivor Noël Hume, a long-time friend and contributor to the journal, and fourteen articles highlighting important ceramic discoveries from archaeological contexts in St. Augustine, Florida; Charleston, South Carolina; New Orleans, Louisiana; Alexandria, Hampton, Williamsburg, and Jamestown, Virginia; St. Mary's City, London Town, and Annapolis, Maryland; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; New York, New York; and Boston and Plymouth, Massachusetts. Anyone with an interest in America's ceramic history will enjoy the diversity of ceramic forms and types that have been uncovered through archaeological research. The remarkable finds discussed here range from a sixteenth-century Spanish majolica dish found in St. Augustine to a late-nineteenth-century Zuni water jar recovered from an urban New Orleans well. This volume will be an important resource for years to come. Now in its seventeenth year of publication, Ceramics in America is considered the journal of record for historical ceramics scholarship in the American context and is intended for collectors, historical archaeologists, curators, decorative arts students, social historians, and contemporary potters.


"Each year Ceramics in America opens a window on most aspects of American life: public and private, imported and native, industrial and aesthetic, social and economic--and on all cultures betwixt and between."--Philip Zea, President, Historic Deerfield, Inc. "Ceramics in America is a highly important publication in the field of ceramics research. Always stunningly produced, it can be counted on to provide the latest research into a variety of topics that impact our understanding of ceramics production and consumption in America."--Suzanne R.F. Hood, Curator of Ceramics and Glass, Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.
