The history of ceramics is wonderfully diverse, spanning crude clay utensils to highly decorative pieces of immense beauty and craftsmanship. This quintessential V&A book, now in paperback with a new cover, draws on the V&A's extensive collection to trace the story of European ceramics from the end of the Middle Ages to the present day. Key developments, techniques, discoveries and styles, from earthenware, stoneware, and tin glaze to the invention of porcelain and the impact of industrialization, are highlighted in this richly illustrated, essential volume.
