An illustrated companion catalog to a 1985 exhibition, Useful Art: Long Island Pottery is the most complete study of the region’s important pottery industry. From the late eighteenth century to the early twentieth century, manufacturers in Brooklyn, Greenport, and Huntington—where the largest and most successful operation was located—produced utilitarian redware and stoneware pottery that supported Long Island’s agricultural and maritime businesses, as well as everyday domestic tasks.
