A Handed Down Art: The Brown Family Potters is a tribute to this family’s long, unbroken, multigenerational chain of potters whose knowledge about making pottery has been passed down from family member to family member, and whose adaptive and innovative approach to the trade ensured its durability. The Brown family potters rightfully deserve a place of high standing among America’s pantheon of important traditional artisans.
