The history of ceramcis reaches far back into remotest antiquity to the earliest archaeological discoveries of crude baked clay vessels. All the mainstreams of ceramics tradition, reflecting the character and taste of different civilizations, are then traced through prehistory, the medieval and Renaissance periods, the age of elegance, followed by the industrial revolution, right up to oresent day. The full range of pottery and porcelain throughout the ages is theby shown within the compass of this book, from the most militarian wares to the classical shapes to the most simple and sculptural forms and from small and frivolous items – like scent-sprays and artificial flowers – to the most grandiose architectural schemes of panels and decorative tiles.
