About Steve Earp

Steve Earp ThrowingI am a potter.  I make traditional redware pottery.  That is, the “folk” pottery of early America.  I love the story of how it all got to be the way it got to be.  So when a fellow Asparagus Valley potter, Lucy Fagella, started extolling the wonders of blogs, I got this idea…

But enough about me.  Go back and read some more!  Or, if you’re done with that, go to my web site and buy something!


And if you’re interested in hearing about the stuff I work on, follow my FaceBook page.

You can also join my email list for updates on Stephen Earp Redware activities.  (I promise not to clog up the inbox – I can barely keep up with stuff as it is!)logo_15

    I just wanted to say I love your site “This Day in Pottery History” and especially the most recent “Women Who Didn’t Make Pottery”. Keep up the good work.

    […] Redware, from New England, who not only makes traditional styled Redware pottery, but blogs about ceramic history!  These are great links.  The history blog is Stephen’s musings after reading historical […]

    Sherman Hall passed your blog along, and I’m very appreciative. I’m surprised to see that Isaac Button isn’t on your list. His appearance on You Tube are remarkable. Every time I see him at work I thank the spirit of the chap who thought to document this apparently happy man, doing what he loved.

    • Steve Earp Says:

      I am awed by the skill of Isaac Button. It’s great that the documentary of him is now available on youtube (sometimes this new computer stuff really is worth it!). As for Isaac making an appearance, well, we still have a way to go before we get to the point where nothing else happened in the old days… So who knows?

      By the way, I do appreciate your kind comments on this little journal.

    What a fantastic piece of work, love it and I’m awed by your dedication, makes me think I’d better pay more attention to my blog. Keep up the good work.

    do you have an email distribution list?

    • Steve Earp Says:

      Thanks for the interest. At this time, I don’t have a distribution list – mainly because I don’t know how to do that. Another drawback is finding time to do all I want. But then, isn’ that what pottery is all about?

      Any tips would be appreciated, though.

      Thanks again,

    I am an historic interpretive guide at Historic Deerfield, Inc.in northwestern Mass. One of my colleagues picked up a “Swichel” drinking vessel made out of pottery etc. I am a Tavern Culture collector lecturing on all facets of the subject. Including, “drinking vessels!” Can you supply me with any information about one such “swtichel” vessel?

  7. Kim Gregory Says:

    Just send any comments or information on the above.

    I have a small piece of pottery with the name “NORTON 311 – USA” on the bottom of it. It has been in our family for over 50 years and was given to me from my mom. We live in NC and it was something she purchased when she got married. It was used for her trinket dish. How would I find out the history of it and what it’s value would be?? If anyone knows, I would appreciate the help, Cathy -Stanfield, NC

    Thanks for the wonderful blog! It has made fine reading as I work on my archaeology dissertation on stoneware potting and learn to throw pots on the side. The variety of topics keeps me thinking about facts I’d otherwise forget, giving me ideas and making sense of the ever-connected world of potters
