The 2014 volume of Ceramics in America presents an exciting collection of essays from prominent scholars in the broad eld of ceramic history.

The contributors to this volume were challenged to produce an annotated list of their top ten ceramic objects, artists, or events for our reading pleasure. These contributions are a celebration of ceramic scholarship and collecting, full of personal experiences and provocative opinions that reveal an aspect of the industry not typically seen. Beautifully illustrated, these articles, which include examples that range from ancient Egyptian pottery to contemporary china painted pots, highlight the universal love of ceramics. The journal concludes with a series of bibliographic essays by leading authors on the most influential ceramic publications they encountered in their careers.

Now in its fourteenth 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.

Forthcoming issues of Chipstone's American Furniture and Ceramics in America annuals are also available at reduced prices by subscription.
