  1. Thank you, these key words should be helpful, I will take a look.
  2. Thank you for the reply. That is an interesting question, as far as I know the Anabaptists/Mennonites in PA have different geographic origins than the Anabaptists who became know as Hutterites and fled to Moravia in the mid 1500s and then were expelled in 1622. While in Moravia they learned the Italian style ceramics. The theory is that some religiously persecuted groups in Italy fled to Moravia where they passed on the ceramic knoweldge. The Hutterites then made alterations to make it thier own. The link to Italy in process is evident but how that link was made so far is at best a theory. This was a different context than the Mennonites who came to PA in the ealry-mid 1600s. I am wondering what process or compounds did they use in Moravia that made thier materials unique?
  3. Hi, I am looking for information on the Anabaptist ceramic industry in Europe ca. 1550-1700 centred in Moravia and Boheimia. At times also known as Habaner ceramics. Some of the descendants of these people live in the USA and Canada and are known as Hutterites. These Anabaptists They created new styles and techniques which I am interested in. I am coming at this from a history perspective as I have no experience in ceramics myself. I would be interested in knowing details about what these techniques were. They began using different materials to produce different colors, so what materials would have been used? Characteristic colours for the glaze were blue, white, yellow and green. For the decoration they used yellow, green, violet, blue and black they used for contour. in the 1600s Where did they get these materials from? How did they fire the items? I would be open to advise, or direction to books, journals or other experts in the field. Thanx for your help!
