Early redware was used in a
variety of ways in 18th century New England homes. Made from clay that was
commonly found near riverbanks, the local potter produced an amazing selection
of plates, pitchers, bowls, candlesticks and teapots to name a few!
The majority of these items were glazed, making them impervious
to moisture. Redware can be used to store and serve food and will
easily withstand temperature necessary for baking. Potters would
sometimes decorate their pieces with a white clay slip before glazing
with simple line and dot designs.
