Josiahs nephew Tom journeys to America to buy clay from the Cherokee for this exquisite china. Tom is caught up in the American rebellion, and falls for a Cherokee woman who will come to play a crucial role in Josiahs late, great creation: the Portland Vase. As the family fortune is made, and Josiahs entrepreneurial brilliance creates an empire that will endure for generations, it is his daughter Sukey, future mother of Charles Darwin, who bears clear-eyed witness.A novel of epic scope, rich in warmth, intellect and humanity, The Potters Hand explores the lives and loves of one of Britains greatest families, whose travails are both ordinary - births, deaths, marriages, opium addiction, depression - and utterly extraordinary.
