A Piece Of Dave The Potter’s Work Has Sold For $1.56M — But His Family Claims They Haven’t Seen A Dime

Today, the outlet reports Drake’s art is the focal point for many through a traveling exhibit called “Hear Me Now: The Black Potters of Old Edgefield California,” which is currently at its Boston, MA, stop.

Antique dealers across the nation credit his work because of its quality. Most of the “alkaline-glazed jugs” feature Drake’s signature, which was a huge risk as slaves who were often punished for being able to read and write. Other pieces include short poems that give those who encounter them insight into his life.
