Bacon Level Alabama
Bacon Level is an unincorporated community located 3–4 miles southeast of Roanoke, in Randolph County. In this community were many potters (and in old Cedric, approx. 1 mile to South, Southeast) who are highly regarded for their excellent pottery. They used the local porcelain white clay of highest quality, sometimes along with some local red clay with an outer glaze of hickory ashes giving a tan or grown glaze. See Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art article for more information.
