Table of Contents

This richly illustrated portrait of North Carolina's pottery traditions tells the story of the generations of 'tuners and burners' whose creation are much admired for their strength and beauty. The first comprehensive ceramic history for the state, this book examines the largely vanished world of folk potters and the continuing achievements of their descendants.

"Turners and Burners makes an enormous contribution to the study of North Carolina folklife. It should be equally at home in an academic's library, on a living-room coffee table, or on a collector's or potter's bookshelf.... North Carolinians, rejoice!"
- North Carolina Folklore Journal

"This is an excellent book to read if you are interested in North Carolina, American ceramics, folk life, or general craft practices, and it will undoubtedly remain a classic for many years to come."
Winterthur Portfolio

"Turners and Burners brings the simple utilitarian wares of North Carolina into meaningful historical and cultural context."
- Journal of American Folklore
