An absolutely wonderful publication by Bloomsbury Publishing ... The best thing about Contemporary Tableware is how lavishly illustrated it is with examples of tableware across different continents, hugely different styles, from the hand-made to manufactured items. It will be a great visual inspiration for many ceramicists and collectors for many years to come. -- Patricia van der Akker The Design Trust Linda, a potter herself since 1973, has brought together some astonishingly beautiful pots ... In [Contemporary Tableware] she takes a world tour of some of the best - from our great potter/philosopher, the Japan and China inspired Bernard Leach and family in St Ives, to Bauhaus and the successor, the Ulms school, on through Scandinavia and pretty well anywhere else where good pots are designed and made, including many famous studios here in the UK ... Thank you writer/potter Linda Bloomfield for helping us see the potter's world. If we can't sadly use and handle pots, then look at them we must. GarethJonesFood.com
Linda Bloomfield has been involved with pottery since 1973, although her career path led her to train as a materials scientist, and she received a BSc in Engineering Science and a PhD in Materials Science from Warwick University. After stints as a visiting scholar at MIT and as a researcher in Tsukuba, Japan and London, she set up her current studio in London in 2001. Since 2003, she has been selling through galleries across the UK and internationally, and her tableware is stocked by Liberty and David Mellor. She is a frequent contributor to Ceramic Review magazine, and is the author of Colour in Glazes, also published by Bloomsbury.
