Preliminary Observations on the Nathaniel Clark Earthenware Pottery at Marietta, Ohio.

Author(s): Wesley S. Clarke

Year: 2016

Summary

The Nathaniel Clark pottery was established at Marietta, Ohio, in 1808 and is thus one of the first such operations in the region.  Excavations initiated in 2013 have encountered well-preserved features, and have produced a useful sample of product and production debris over three field seasons.  Concurrent documentary research is also providing details on the personal and business contexts of the Clark pottery.  The location of this manufactory at a major regional hub provides insight regarding patterns of commerce and craft during a relatively early developmental period in the American Midwest.
