Details

Historic 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 to help archaeologists, historians, and collectors identify pottery production sites.
