I purchased The Big Book of Ceramics by Chavarria. His very short history
begins with a disclaimer that he really isn't offering any attempt at a
real history of ceramics.A limited range of color plates.
Also enjoyed Glenn Nelson's two chapters in Ceramics: A Potter's Guide, 5th
ed. Interesting text but the color photos/plates are very limited in terms
of historic objects. He suggests that ceramics began perhaps in Neolithic
In contrast, I read a section on ceramics in Marilyn Stokstad's Art
History. She asserts that ceramic kilns have been found from as early as
32,000 BCE. Anyone suggest a place to verufy this, or even better books
with color photos/prints of this and other developments through the journey
of ceramics over time?
Thanks for your help!
