Conveyed in Clay: Stories from St. Catherines Island

Using pottery as a lens, Conveyed in Clay: Stories from St. Catherines Island explores 5,000 years of human history, from the oldest pots discovered in North America to the introduction of Spanish majolica in the mission era.

Featuring a selection of objects from the St. Catherines Island Foundation and Edward John Noble Foundation Collection, this new permanent exhibition examines how Native Americans adapted to changes in natural and cultural conditions through the evolution of their pottery. From the invention of simple pinch pots to the progressive engineering of more advanced coil pots, visitors will explore the innovative designs and the introduction of decorative embellishment as cultures interacted.
