      Alabama Folk Pottery
      What a great book! Montgomery's own Joey Brackner has published Alabama
      Folk Pottery, the definitive, comprehensive, and really downright
      interesting culmination of 20 years of Joey's research into (and love
      of) folk potters all over the state. Thousands of hours of research,
      hundreds of photographs, and scores of fascinating interviews, make this
      book that rarity: a "coffee table book" that you'll actually find
      yourself reading from over to cover.
       
      Here are a couple of reviews of the book:
       
      A major addition to the study of southern pottery as well as Alabama
      history and art. I'm truly impressed with the extraordinary number of
      potters Brackner has uncovered and the wide range of evidence he uses to
      shed light on their achievements. --Charles (Terry) Zug, author of
      "Turners and Burners: The Folk Potters of North Carolina"
       
      Alabama Folk Pottery should quickly become a classic. What especially
      excites me is that it fills a void in the bigger picture, allowing us to
      follow the migration of potters and, with them, the evolution of a
      regional ceramic tradition. At the same time, Brackner demonstrates how
      these migrations led to an identifiable Alabama pottery tradition.--John
      Burrison, author of "Brothers in Clay: The Story of Georgia Folk
      Pottery"
