colour frontis. photo. of a potter at his wheel; The history of handmade earthenwares and the techniques used in making them are absorbing subjects for the collector and for anyone interested in local industries past and present. Many local potteries still produce goods for a local market - even using local materials. The growth and decline of the many craft potteries that have worked in England from medieval times until today are here discussed, and a full picture of the development of the pottery industry and of its techniques over the last 500 years emerges. Much original research is incorporated, including the first classification of the little-known wares of the late fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, and a reconsideration of the development of the English slipware tradition and of the rise of the Staffordshire potteries. The full technical account of the craft is drawn not only from documentary sources but also from discussions recorded with country potters working today. A comprehensive gazetteer of the majority of the craft potteries that have worked in England since 1500 is added, with lists of potting terms and of local names for the different forms of pottery vessels.
