Opening Reception: Historic Slip! Decoration in North Carolina

December 7, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Close up of a historic Jabob Weaver slip decorated plate.

Please join us for the opening reception of Historic Slip! Decoration in NC from 6:00-7:30 PM on Friday, December 7th. The reception is free and open to the public.

The use of slip is an integral tradition in the evolution of ceramics in North Carolina. Slip was used as decoration in various forms from the application of engobes to change the surface color of the clay palette to trailed, dotted, marbled, and splotched designs. Utilization of slip writing conveyed messages, advertising, and dating of pottery. Designs can be used as an invaluable resource to help archaeologists, historians, and collectors identify pottery production sites.

Curated by Hal & Eleanor Pugh.
