Since the earliest times women have made pottery and clay sculptures, and they have cooked, carried water, stored and served food in pottery. They have used ceramics in domestic rituals and decorative display. In her wide-ranging discussion of this subject, Moira Vincentelli examines some of the great female ceramic traditions such as Pueblo pottery and considers the notable success women have had over the last century from Susie Cooper and Eva Zeisel in design to individual ceramic artists such as Lucie Rie and Magdalene Odundo. She also shows how women have left their mark in the field of ceramics as writers, teachers, business women, gallery owners and collectors.
