"In the 18th century the decorations on stoneware pottery took the shape of
formalized loops, flowers, animals, fish, birds, and butterflies.
"Stoneware pottery such as: crocks, jugs, jars, wine-vats, churns,
water-coolers, flasks, bottles, pudding dishes, milk pans, mugs, and so on.
However, stoneware makers strove toward, and its buyers demanded, work that was
not only utilitarian, but decorative in form as well as in surface
ornamentation. The pottery itself was as a rule colored in shades of grey or
tan, and finished off in a transparent salt-glaze. The ornamentation was most
often a cobalt blue slip, and could leave a bluish tint in any given area on the
piece, due to the method used to fire the piece. In the earlier work, this is
incised on the body of the stoneware, but later it was merely applied by means
of a stencil or brush. Such as in well known Flo blue porcelain, the cobalt slip
would bleed, and flow over the pottery.In the 18th century the
decorations on stoneware pottery took the shape of formalized loops, flowers,
animals, fish, birds, and butterflies. Gradually the designs became more
naturalistic and more elaborate. They began to include domestic items, such as
chickens, and also various political symbols, such as the American Eagle,
bearing the national shield. In the early years of production American stoneware
designs were incised into the clay. Then in 1860 stencils were used rather than
the crude freehand manner of the 18th century.
