Now in its eight 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.

This volume of Ceramics in America features articles on eighteenth-century New York and New Jersey salt-glazed stoneware, a fascinating ceramic cargo from the "Blue China" wreck, nineteenth-century ceramic consumption patterns in the Anglo-American merchant trade, and commemorative ceramics made for the 1907, 1957, and 2007 anniversaries of the founding off Jamestown, Virginia. Included are many additional articles detailing important new discoveries in the ceramic field and scholarly reviews of recently published ceramic books.

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