This comprehensive, attractive and fully illustrated survey tells the story of the development of ceramics in China from the Neolithic period to the present day. Explaining and assessing the major roles that pottery has played in each dynasty throughout China's long history, the author also discusses its enormous impact on the ceramic industries of the rest of the world, where Chinese porcelain has been admired, imitated and collected for centuries. The author considers the purposes for which the ceramics of each period were made, how their production was organized, and what effect the local conditions might have had on their final forms. Incorporating contemporary commentaries, recent archaeological evidence from kiln sites and modern scientific analysis, this book provides a valuable and accessible account of China's ceramic history.Biografía del autor:
