Tableware has occupied a special place in our kitchens and dining rooms for thousands of years, and continues to enchant us today. Ranging from the purely functional to the fine and delicate, the evolution of domestic pots tells us much about our changing tastes and habits, and the wider art and cultural movements that have influenced their decoration and forms. In Contemporary Tableware, maker Linda Bloomfield looks at design sources, following influences from history on the pots on our tables, from Sung Chinese and Medieval English ware to the revival of studio pottery and the influence of Scandinavian, American and Japanese design. She goes on to examine common forms in contemporary tableware, including teapots, bowls, cups, jugs and plates, and to explain the elements of form, function and beauty in each. Lavishly illustrated with examples from contemporary studio pottery and industry, as well as making images from working potters, this book is the essential guide to modern tableware for potters, designers and buyers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
An absolutely wonderful publication by Bloomsbury Publishing ... The best thing about Contemporary Tableware is how lavishly illustrated it is with examples of tableware across different continents, hugely different styles, from the hand-made to manufactured items. It will be a great visual inspiration for many ceramicists and collectors for many years to come. -- Patricia van der Akker * The Design Trust *
Linda, a potter herself since 1973, has brought together some astonishingly beautiful pots ... In [Contemporary Tableware] she takes a world tour of some of the best - from our great potter/philosopher, the Japan and China inspired Bernard Leach and family in St Ives, to Bauhaus and the successor, the Ulms school, on through Scandinavia and pretty well anywhere else where good pots are designed and made, including many famous studios here in the UK ... Thank you writer/potter Linda Bloomfield for helping us see the potter's world. If we can't sadly use and handle pots, then look at them we must. * GarethJonesFood.com *
