Description:Photograph showing some of the basic materials used to make pottery.

This photograph appears to be one of a group used for a presentation or slide show by Blake entitled “Staffordshire Pottery.”

A small folder containing approximately sixty reader cards was found in the same box as the slides. The cards contain information about the images. The card that appears to correspond to this slide reads;

"The Material of Pottery Making. This is already partly manufactured. The bone is calcined, the stone is burned, and the fritted glaze is glass. Clays from the bulk of the body with a small addition of bone and stone. Glaze is not used in the body but is applied on the outside to close the pores."
