strong An AZ history of ceramic art by one of the worlds leading ceramic artists, Edmund de Waal.The history of ceramic art is ingrained in the history of mankind Clay is one of the very first materials invented by man An essential part of our lives it has been moulded, thrown, glazed, decorated and fired for over 30,000 years in order to preserve and transport food and water And it was on the surface of these early jugs, vases, dishes, plates, beakers and amphorae that man placed some of his first decorative markings In recent times clay has been used not just by artisans and potters, but also by artists, designers and architects.The Pot Book is the first publication to document the extraordinary range and variety of ceramic vessels of all periods, from a delicate bowl made by an unnamed artisan in China in the third millennium bc, or a jug made in eighteenthcentury Dresden, to a plate made by Picasso in 1952, a spade form made by Hans Coper or the vases of Grayson Perry today Each entry is sequenced in alphabetical order by the name of the artist potter, the school, or style, creating a grand tour through the very finest examples of the art form.

    1. Mi aspettavo qualcosa di meglio sia come contenuti che illustrazioni. Libro nel complesso sufficiente, ma non vale il il prezzo

    2. This is an exceptional book. Each pot is illustrated with a full-page color photograph of high quality in this large format book; the photographs seem to have been taken especially for this publication. The captions below the photographs qualify as short essays dealing with, possibly, the artist, a tradition, art history, or an aspect of the technique involved in making the specific pot. These captions are highly stimulating and make the book far more than just a picture book of carefully select [...]

    3. An very unusual way of looking at the history of pots, but good. Each page is about a maker or technique or type of pot in an interesting way. It is a world view of the pot and it's makers which everyone needs instead of an American view of this form. Great photos and reference read.

    4. I chose this book as I really like picture books for starters, but I like the way it was photographed and narrated and covered many styles and era's. Lots of really interesting facts but not too lengthy in its description. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is interested not only in ceramics, pottery or history, as it's just a lovely record of how gifted some people are.

    5. This book is arranged alphabetically and as you page through it you see a huge variety of wonderful pottery. I teach ceramics and it is a fabulous teaching tool. I disassembled the book so we can look at pages individually for discussion and also for display. I think the publisher should to a boxed edition of images just for this purpose.
