This detailed and comprehensive survey charts the entire history of British studio ceramics from the emergence of modern ceramics from the Victorian factories around 1900 to the wide variety of extraordinary work being produced in the 21st century. All the best-known potters such as Leach, Hamada, Cardew, Rie and Coper, to name a few, are examined in-depth in terms of their different areas of interest and influence. An extensive appendix gives information on 200 leading makers with their identifying marks and cross-references with a list of museums where their work can be seen. Illustrated throughout with colour photographs, this is a book for the collector needing in-depth information or for those who just want an introduction to this subject.
