The use of clay as a material for vessels and functional pieces has been widespread from earliest times. Its flowering into tableware we so take for granted, however, is relatively recent.

In this book, the author explores the creation and use of tableware throughout the ages, from the earliest making of simple pots to some of the stunning pieces made by modern studio potters. The variety of shapes, colours and uses of tableware throughout the ages are discussed and well as the materials and techniques used in their creation. Tableware in Clay is lavishly illustrated throughout with full colour photographs.
