Event Details

Warren Payne, editor of Clear as Mud: Early 20th Century Kentucky Art Pottery, will discuss the book – the first and only history of the subject – at The Filson on December 13. His wife, Julie, who designed the book and did the photography, will also participate.

Struck by the lack of any organized or centralized information about pottery produced in Kentucky from 1900 to World War II, the authors contacted pottery collector/scholars to contribute chapters for the book. This book familiarizes us with the works of potters such as Bybee, Waco, and Hadley.

Clear as Mud won the 2011 Independent Publisher (IPPY) Book Awards Bronze for Best South-East Regional Non-Fiction. It was also the recipient of a 2011 Kentucky History Award for a publication in its class.

Warren and Julie Payne are collectors and private art dealers in Louisville. He is retired from The Courier-Journal, and she is retired from the University of Louisville.

Reservations are suggested.
