While generations of collectors have studied the wares of the potteries, the circumstances of their production have often been overlooked. The story of the Potteries deserved better, for no British industry was ever so concentrated, so polluting, and then so transformed. No industrial skyline was ever more memorable than the forest of bottle ovens which for almost two centuries dominated Stoke-On-Trent. This book shows how the Potteries became such a remarkable place and illustrates the traditional skills of the potters. It highlights their living and working conditions and occupational health risks.
