The Potter's EyeBooks
Classic North Carolina stoneware pots--with their rich textures, monochromatic glazes, and minimal decoration--belong to one of America's most revered stoneware pottery traditions. In a lavishly illustrated catalogue celebrating that tradition, Mark Hewitt and Nancy Sweezy trace the history of North Carolina pottery from the nineteenth century to the present day. The Potter’s Eye honors the keen focus of the vernacular potters exhibited at NCMA from October 30, 2005-March 19, 2006, and is an evocative guide for anyone interested in the art of North Carolina pottery and the aesthetic majesty of this resilient and long-standing tradition. Published by the University of North Carolina Press and printed in China. Hardcover, 274 pgs.
