• Early German Stoneware

    This book is a concise history of German stoneware, illustrated with 200 vivid photos, spanning from c.1300 to 1700 AD. German stoneware, high fired, nearly waterproof before light salt glazing, and extremely durable, has been described as "the most important and specific contribution that Germany made to the medieval European ceramic arts." This book interprets archeological remains in a bid to explore the spread of German stoneware to Britain, Continental Europe, and Colonial America. German stoneware has a story to tell. In 1300, the potters of Siegburg succeeded in fusing clay at an extreme high temperature to produce Rheinische Steinzeug, the stoneware of the Rhine, a virtually waterproof material. Rheinische Steinzeug became very popular and is considered to be one of the most important medieval ceramics. From the kitchens of medieval Europe to those of Colonial America, this fascinating story of German stoneware's dissemination and use is perfect for collectors, dealers, historians, archaeologists, museums, and anyone with a passion for the ceramic arts.

  • Salt-glazed Stoneware in Early America

    This is the first comprehensive book on salt-glazed stoneware in Early America. Imported from Germany and England and domestically made, salt-glazed stoneware vessels were an integral part of daily life in America from the time of European settlement until the dawn of the last century. Because it is impervious to the harmful effects of highly saline or acidic solutions, salt-glazed stoneware was uniquely well suited for use in preparing and storing a wide range of liquids and foodstuffs. Particularly in the first half of the seventeenth century, before the development of the British green glass bottle industry, stoneware was the only appropriate material for foods preserved by pickling or brining. Even after glass bottles became prevalent, stoneware's durability made it the material of choice for both domestic and tavern use. "Salt-glazed Stoneware in Early America" chronicles the traditions of stoneware imported from England and Germany as well as the often overlooked work of American potters during the eighteenth century. Drawing on archaeological and documentary sources, and featuring objects drawn from Colonial Williamsburg's holdings as well as from dozens of public and private collections, the book provides an invaluable overview of the goods found in early America.
