About the Authors
  • The Chinese are famed as the first to have discovered and mastered the techniques needed to produce porcelain. Yet carefully crafted ceramics are valued not only for their beauty, but also as precious cultural artifacts shedding light on the period in which they were produced. Chinese ceramics represent works of art both in themselves and as a medium for painting, poetry, calligraphy and sculpture. This accessible, introductory survey takes the reader through the rich history of Chinese ceramics from primitive pottery to delicate porcelain, complemented by full-color illustrations throughout.

    • An accessible introduction to the rich history of Chinese ceramics
    • Written by a leading Chinese expert whose work is not widely available in the West
    • Full colour illustrations support the discussion throughout
