Earthenware Vessel

This image is copyrighted. You may not use it without written consent.

This vessel, referred to as Colono-Indian ware, was most likely made by Native Americans living in what would eventually become the Edgefield District of South Carolina. This piece – perhaps 1,000 years old – was coiled and hand-shaped, then fired unglazed at a low temperature. Earthenware such as this was not nearly as strong as the stoneware that later came to define Edgefield District manufacturing.
