Edmund de Waal describes himself as a 'potter who writes'. His porcelain has been displayed in many museum collections around the world and he has recently made a huge installation for the dome of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

Format: Paperback
An interesting text but I was disappointed with size of the book and the illustrations.It also seems a bit irregular jumping from one period to another...perhaps because I've read it in bits !I think it's the sort of book that will grow on me ,but I wish I'd bought the other De Val book on Pottery.

Beautiful and informative book. Excellent photographs. Only slight disappointment is that it does not show potter's marks. Perhaps not the intention but it would complete the information and provide a valuable reference wherever applicable.

I got this for a present for a friend but although it is written by Edmund Duval it doesn't have any of his ceramics in it. It is very interesting and beautifully laid out and illustrated and is of interest to anyone interested in modern ceramics, which I am.

When you do your City and Guilds in Ceramics, there's the fun side - namely the art and design and clay work, and then there's HOMEWORK...ugh
Once you have your Certificate, you then go for the Diploma and then the homework includes filling an A3 portfolio on the last 100 years of cermamics, and yet another portfolio on your 12 chosen potters.
To succeed in the project this book is an absolute must. I also bought Miller's 20th Century Ceramics and now the task doesn't seem so daunting - I've made notes from the books. It's just a question of finding the right moment to start the homework......

Essential reading 2 Jan 2008
By E. Walker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book for understanding ceramics of the 20th century. It is well written and has excellent photographic images. For each era several artists are given which enables you to take your study further. This book is a good foundation book from which to begin and expand your study of ceramic history.

Literature in unexpected places 15 Aug 2012
By Roberta S. Bloom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Edmund de Waal is the same man who wrote The Hare with Amber Eyes so it shouldn't have been a surprise that he was capable of bringing a history of ceramics to life. Because he is an ceramist himself he owns his subject. Read this book if you're interested in ceramics or just read this because he writes so well.
A good overview of the past century 18 Nov 2014

I wish the pictures were larger and the words smaller. A good overview of the past century.
