Traditional Pieces

Having learned about the process of pottery making, we shall now look at the social and cultural aspects of this activity. The varied nature of the pieces made in the kilos of Quart responded to the needs of a society for which earthenware utensils were indispensable for many everyday activities. Behind every different pottery item was a need, a way of living and doing things. Not all Quart pottery was blackware; since at least the 19th century the town’s potters have also produced red, oxidised pottery, competing with other centres and providing for new needs. Redware is made simply by not plugging the kiln at the end of the firing process. In this section, then, we learn about pottery and the society that used its products.
