Summary In this book, Patricia Fay tells the history of the Anglophone Caribbean by documenting the material culture in the form of locally made earthenware pots--everyday objects that have been central to domestic life dating from precolonial to postcolonial times. Over the course of twenty years and multiple visits to the region, Fay has documented, via text and image, the living heritage of traditional ceramics in the contemporary Caribbean, introducing the reader to the generations of potters, pots, and production techniques. In the process, she charts the history of the region and its people, reminding the reader of the extraordinary historical insights to be gained by examining seemingly quotidian objects.
