In this family history, American literary critic Christopher Benfey examines the origins of a unique craft tradition grounded in the clay pits and folk potteries of North Carolina's rural Piedmont, weaving together the story of his North Carolina-born mother and that of his father, a refugee from Nazi Germany who settled in the American South near the radically experimental Black Mountain College with his aunt and uncle, Bauhaus artists Josef and Anni Albers.
