John Bell Reproduction

Bell was born in Hagerstown, Md., in 1800. The oldest of 10 children, he was trained by his father, Peter Bell, and influenced by Hagerstown’s large and active community of immigrant potters. Before the birth of his son in 1828, Bell moved to Waynesboro, Pa., along with his wife, Elizabeth, and established a successful pottery shop, John Bell and Sons, on South Potomac Street.

The Ceramic Arts Center (CAC) of Waynesboro houses many of the artifacts in Bell’s pottery shop and parts of his kiln, which were recovered from the 1994 excavation conducted by James Smith, the former executive director.

The annual John Bell Reproduction is a fundraiser for the NCCS as it continues to promote the history of American folk art, with emphasis on the region’s rich historic pottery tradition.

This event is free and is opened to the public, with parking available on the campus’ lower parking lot.
