Intended for collectors, historical archaeologists, curators, decorative arts students, social historians and contemporary potters, every issue features a variety of ground-breaking scholarly articles, new discoveries in the field, and book and exhibition reviews for this diverse audience. The 2005 issue of Ceramics in America will feature a diverse lineup of articles and new discoveries. Of particular interest will be articles covering early American stoneware from Baltimore and Richmond, Virginia. Of interest to both ceramic collectors and social historians is an article reviewing ceramics related to the publication of Uncle Tom’s Cabin.
