"This extraordinary life deserves wide attention. And, fittingly for a book about an artist, DAVE THE POTTER is beautifully designed and illustrated."
From the Publisher
Editors Note To us it is just dirt,the ground we walk on...But to Daveit was clay,the plain and basic stuffupon which he formed a lifeas a slave nearly 200 years ago. Dave was an extraordinary artist, poet, and potter living in South Carolina in the 1800s. He combined his superb artistry with deeply observant poetry, carved onto his pots, transcending the limitations he faced as a slave. In this inspiring and lyrical portrayal, National Book Award nominee Laban Carrick Hill's elegantly simple text and award-winning artist Bryan Collier's resplendent, earth-toned illustrations tell Dave's story, a story rich in history, hope, and long-lasting beauty.
Annotation This wonderful picture book is an ode to Dave the potter, an enslaved man who created gorgeous pottery and inscribed it with lines of poetry. Living in South Carolina in the 19th-century, Dave was a slave with the gift of shaping clay into containers of all kinds. With a poetic text and rich illustrations, this is his story. With a biography.
