Stephen C. Compton is an independent scholar and an avid collector of historic, traditional North Carolina pottery. Widely recognized for his North Carolina pottery expertise, the author is frequently called upon as a lecturer and exhibit consultant and curator. Jugtown Pottery 1917-2017: A Century of Art and Craft in Clay is a long awaited history of North Carolina's celebrated Jugtown community. Stephen Compton describes how Jacques and Juliana Royster Busbee encouraged local potters and marketed their work in Juliana's Greenwich Village tea room and shop. Compton's fine book shows why the potters and their work are truly national treasures.
