Edgefield Pottery

Edgefield pottery was made near the small town of Edgefield, South Carolina from about 1812 until the 1920s.  Early on, Edgefield pottery was made by trained journeman potters who came to Edgefield from the pottery centers of the Mid Atlantic States.  Later, local men were trained as potters, and eventually slaves wer also taught how to turn the pots, glaze, and fire them.  Over the course of time, many different shapes, forms, decorations and glazes were made in the Edgefield pottery district and then used by the folks that bought them.

The Edgefield tradition of alkaline glaze stoneware traveled west with the pioneers from about 1820 until as late as 1860, establishng potteries from Georgia to Arkansas and Texas.  Here on my website, I hope to offer you some of the variety of Edgefield South Carolina pottery that has survived and is being collected and treasured today.  Enjoy!
