This conversation offers multiple perspectives on the Hood Museum’s recently acquired early nineteenth-century jug by David Drake, or “Dave the Potter.” Drake was notable not only for his skillfully produced vessels but also for his poetry, which he sometimes inscribed on his vessels, though literacy in enslaved populations was illegal at that time.
