Movement of Potters and Traditions: A View from Washington County, Virginia
Author(s): Chris T. Espenshade
The nineteenth-century potters of southwestern Virginia came from diverse, geographic sources. These individuals brought with them extra-local traditions of pottery decoration and kiln technology. The origins and interactions of Washington County potters will be delineated as case studies of how potters moved across the countryside. Individual potter histories will presented as illustrative of the general trend of movement of potters out of Pennsylvania, Delaware, eastern Maryland, and New York into western Virginia and Tennessee.
