Ceramics in America, the scholarly journal edited by Robert Hunter and published by the Chipstone Foundation, widens our perspectives with articles by archeologists, economic historians, and collectors who enjoy research.”—Maine Antique Digest

A diverse range of essays, new discoveries, and book reviews on the latest research of interest to ceramics scholars

The 2012 volume of Ceramics in America presents wide-ranging articles on diverse ceramics topics. Of special note is an archaeological study of industrially produced Japanese ceramics from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries that have been found on many archaeological sites in North America. An important history of the production of porcelain in Baltimore, Maryland, is presented in full color for the first time. Ceramics recovered from a 1622 Spanish shipwreck and early Chinese porcelain found in Panama are among the significant archaeological discoveries discussed. Of special note for collectors and scholars alike, American stoneware from Alexandria, Virginia, and Albany, New York, is presented in a series of beautifully illustrated articles.

This volume concludes with insightful scholarly reviews of six recently published ceramic books.

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