Chinese Potter by S P A Sykes Hunters
Book DescriptionChina has the longest and most highly developed ceramic tradition in the world, encompassing early Neolithic earthenwares, the finely glazed stoneware pieces of the Song period - widely regarded as among the greatest ceramics ever produced and years' worth of Imperial patronage and export ware for the new markets of the West. Margaret Medley's classic groundbreaking study is the first to bring a practical approach to the study of Chinese pottery. She makes full use of archaeological reports to show how differing geographical areas, materials and developing technologies all shaped the evolution of Chinese ceramics. Her revolutionary insights, along with an astute critical judgement in the field of art history itself, combine to form a definitive but approachable account that has profoundly influenced the way in which Chinese pottery is studied. Long out of print but always in demand, this work has now been reissued once again in paperback, making it easily accessible to a new generation of readers.
