With field research from the late 1970s, this DVD and book represent one of the Smithsonian's earliest studies of American folklife. The project enlivens the history and legacy of North Georgia's “pottery dynasty.” Discover the richness and the challenges of a family and a tradition adapting through America's dynamic 20th century to produce pottery that blends “utility” and “pedigree,” custom and innovation.
