Potter, teacher, and writer Jack Troy once said, "If North America has a 'pottery state, ' it must be North Carolina." North Carolina Potteries Through Time proves to readers that his assessment is correct. Prehistoric Native American potters first made pottery in the region, followed by eighteenth-century English and German settlers. Many generations of potters followed in their footsteps, and today hundreds of potters and ceramics artists turn out ware in every part of the state. In the town of Seagrove, there's a whole museum and educational center dedicated to North Carolina pottery production. Many private and public collections exist. Buyers seek it out at auctions, antique shops, kiln openings, festivals, and studio sales. This book is chock-full of images representing all periods and styles of pottery made in the state, including many published for the first time. Readers new to the topic, as well as expert collectors, historians, and potters will find satisfaction in this richly illustrated and descriptively written volume

The first comprehensive study of the meaning of pottery as a social activity in coastal North Carolina. Pottery types, composed of specific sets of attributes, have long been defined for various periods and areas of the Atlantic coast, but their relationships and meanings have not been explicitly examined. In exploring these relationships for the North Carolina coast, this work examines the manner in which pottery traits cross-cut taxonomic types, tests the proposition that communities of practice existed at several scales, and questions the fundamental notion of ceramic types as ethnic markers. Ethnoarchaeological case studies provide a means of assessing the mechanics of how social structure and gender roles may have affected the transmission of pottery-making techniques and how socio-cultural boundaries are reflected in the distribution of ceramic traditions. Another very valuable source of information about past practices is replication experimentation, which provides a means of understanding the practical techniques that lie behind the observable traits, thereby improving our understanding of how certain techniques may have influenced the transmission of traits from one potter to another. Both methods are employed in this study to interpret the meaning of pottery as an indicator of social activity on the North Carolina coast.

Prize-winning photographer Bruce Roberts has assembled a treasure trove of photos and stories that epitomize North Carolina from the 1950s to 1980. Catch a glimpse of simple farmers and farmhouses, lighthouses, Civil Rights demonstrations, kids in orphanages, country doctors, tranquil nature scenes, and the everyday people of North Carolina's past. This collection of stunning color and black-and-white photos will make you long for a simpler time when old men played checkers on the sidewalk, farmers walked the streets of downtown in their overalls, and old general stores sold everything from penny candy to charcoal grills. It covers a time when North Carolina was still planting tobacco, plowing and harvesting with mules, but also a time of great change for the cities of Charlotte and Raleigh. Photographer Bruce Roberts caught the old ways and the upheaval of these years on film.
