A Historical Sketch of Pottery Manufacture in Barbados

1963 (Jerome S. Handler) “A Historical Sketch of Pottery Manufacture in Barbados.” JBMHS 30: 129-53.

Traces the roots of the island’s pottery industry within the context of the needs of early sugar manufacturing and the kinds of vessels that were produced to meet these needs. Discusses the influence of England on this industry and the role of enslaved potters; also what can be said about the beginnings of the domestic pottery produced in the village of Chalky Mount during the slave and post-slavery periods.
