in 1972, New Salem Pottery is owned and operated by Hal Pugh and Eleanor Minnock-Pugh. Hal and Eleanor produce a variety of
original redware and stoneware pottery. Years of work at the wheel and the subtle evolutionary convergence of originality
with past traditions make their pottery recognizable by its own style. The slip decorated redware pitcher shown above is illustrative
of their art.
- The Pughs also replicate
redware and stoneware pottery from the sixteenth through the twentieth century. Their expertise facilitates a specialization
in the reproduction of eighteenth and nineteenth century slip decorated and plain redware. Working as consultants to
archaeologists, historians, and set decorators concerning historic ceramic techniques and processes, their pottery has
been displayed and used by universities, historic sites, the movie industry, and living history museums throughout the
United States and abroad. See - Gallery - History and Location - at the top of page.
- New Salem Pottery business hours are:
10:00 AM to 5:00 PM Wednesday
Closed the week of Thanksgiving.
