About this title

Synopsis:

The first book to provide a comprehensive overview of British pottery, The Potter's Art traces this remarkable history from the rudimentary pots of the Middle Ages to the intellectually ambitious art of today's studio potters. Beginning with the peasant potter, Garth Clark moves on to describe the development of style and fashion under Josiah Wedgwood. He also examines the work of the artist-potters William De Morgan and the Martin brothers, and the studio potters Bernard Leach and Lucie Rie. Focusing particularly on the human angle, the author brings the potters to life by describing their working conditions, lifestyles and characters.

About the Author:

The author of some thirty books and more than 100 seminal essays, reviews and articles on modern and contemporary ceramics, Garth Clark is a leading authority on the subject. He founded the Ceramic Arts Foundation in 1979, and directs two galleries, in New York and Los Angeles, specializing in ceramic art.
