About

A tall cylindrical shaped lamp by noted potter Bouck White circa 1940s.
Charles Browning "Bouck" White (October 20, 1874– January 7, 1951) was a Congregational minister, an American socialist, a Jesusist, an author, a potter, and a recluse. Bouck White was active in New Scotland, Albany County, NY in the Helderberg Mountains area, and with the help of two Swedish brothers, he built by hand a primitive castle out of local limestone in the mid 1930s.[17] He referred to his buildings as "Federalburg" and "The Spirit of the Helderbergs," but local residents called it the "Helderberg Castle."

He made a living selling "Bouckware" pottery with a new glazing technique that required no heat. Fire destroyed his living quarters at the castle in 1940, and in 1944 White suffered a stroke that forced him to enter the Home for Aged Men in Menands where he died in 1951".
