Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
This edition has a very, thorough article on Thomas Chandler and his potting career. It focuses on all known aspects of his career but has a central area of focus on his historical impact on the pottery industry during the early 1800's in Edgefield, South Carolina. He had an amazing ability to consistently produce quality wares in the volatile environment of a groundhog kiln. Not only was his mastery of this amazing his incredible gift for decorating his wares with kaolin and/or iron was even more intriguing. He brought the concept of doing this in great numbers to Edgefield.
Chandler marketed wonderfully. He was very forthright in this by writing in large lettering on some of his vessels "Warranted" or "Warranted Good". Many of his wares were stamped "Chandler Maker".
Phil Wingard's discoveries, research and documentation show incredible findings. His research into Chandler's work is thorough and done in an unbiased manner that simply seeks the facts. His refreshing work is not to promote a movie or whatever money seeking pursuit many have. It is simply a love for the history and uncovering what was previously not known that motivates his work.
The Thomas Chandler section of this book is in and of itself reason to purchase Rob Hunter's wonderfully edited edition!!
Worth every penny! 5 stars!!
