EAST LIVERPOOL, OH – JUNE 5: Mike Price, 59, began working for various incarnations of the American Mug and Stein Company 27 years ago. Price separates mugs from their casting molds to help fill the order from Starbucks that has brought in new energy to the company and its town, East Liverpool, OH. East Liverpool, once known as the “Pottery Capitol of the World,” has been the home to 300 potteries throughout its history. The town has experienced the fallout of the decline in the industry throughout the past 40 years.(Jeff Swensen for the New York Times)
