Ceramic Traditions of South-East Asia, John Guy
7 John Guy Ceramic Traditions of South-East Asia
Oxford University Press 232099 Oxford 1989 0195889347 / 9780195889345 Hardcover (Printed Boards) Very Good Condition The achievements of the potters of South-East Asia have not been widely acknowledged in the history of the region, and were rarely seen by early writers as having a clear cultural identity of their own. This book provides an introduction to the histories of the glazed ceramic traditions of South-East Asia. It examines the ceramics of Burma, Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam, and discusses the wares, kiln technology, and evolution of forms and glazes. Through current archaeological work in Thailand and investigations of kiln sites in Burma and Vietnam, John Guy incorporates much new material in the study, providing a new understanding of the region's ceramic traditions. 68 pages.

The Chinese Potter: A Practical History of Chinese Ceramics, Margaret Medley
10 Margaret Medley The Chinese Potter: A Practical History of Chinese Ceramics
Phaidon Press 232268 London 1999 Reprint 071482593X / 9780714825939 Softcover Very Good Condition China has the longest and most highly developed ceramic tradition in the world, encompassing early Neolithic earthenwares, the finely glazed stoneware pieces of the Song period - widely regarded as among the greatest ceramics ever produced and years' worth of Imperial patronage and export ware for the new markets of the West. Margaret Medley's classic groundbreaking study is the first to bring a practical approach to the study of Chinese pottery. She makes full use of archaeological reports to show how differing geographical areas, materials and developing technologies all shaped the evolution of Chinese ceramics. Her revolutionary insights, along with an astute critical judgement in the field of art history itself, combine to form a definitive but approachable account that of the whole history of Chinese pottery. 288 pages. Illustrated. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Antiques & Collectibles::Collectibles; Antiques & Collectibles; ISBN: 071482593X. ISBN/EAN: 9780714825939.

Inside Japanese Ceramics - A Primer of Materials, Techniques and Traditions, Richard L. Wilson
14 Richard L. Wilson Inside Japanese Ceramics - A Primer of Materials, Techniques and Traditions
Weatherhill 232063 New York 1999 0834804425 / 9780834804425 Softcover Near Fine Condition This practical and supremely useful manual is the first comprehensive, hands-on introduction to Japanese ceramics. The Japanese ceramics tradition is without compare in its technical and stylistic diversity, its expressive content, and the level of appreciation it enjoys, both in Japan and around the world. Inside Japanese Ceramics focuses on tools, materials, and procedures, and how all of these have influenced the way traditional Japanese ceramics look and feel. A true primer, it concentrates on the basics: setting up a workshop, pot-forming techniques, decoration, glazes, and kilns and firing. It introduces the major methods and styles that are taught in most Japanese workshops, including several representative and well-known wares: Bizen, Mino, Karatsu, Hagi, and Kyoto. While presenting the time-tested techniques of the tradition, author Richard L. Wilson also accommodates modern technologies and materials as appropriate. Wilson has gathered a wealth of information on two fronts-as a researcher of Japanese pottery and art history, and as a potter who has studied and worked for years with master Japanese potters. In his introduction, he provides a short history of Japanese ceramics, and in closing he looks beyond traditional methods toward ways in which Western potters can make Japanese methods their own. Richly illustrated with 24 color plates, over 100 black-and-white photographs, and over 70 instructive line-drawings, Inside Japanese Ceramics is indispensable for potters as well as connoisseurs and collectors of Japanese ceramics. Above all, it is an invitation to participate-to study, make, touch, and use the exquisite products of the Japanese ceramic tradition. 190 pages. Fully Illustrated. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Antiques & Collectibles::Collectibles; United States; ISBN: 0834804425. ISBN/EAN: 9780834804425. Inventory No: 232063. Paperback

No, no. That is where you mistake. Life is not so cruel. If you would only trust yourself to me. Look here; I know I could manage so that no one in this district would know a word about it. As I told you I could get you down to Sydney to my cousin " He stopped because Reina had laughed. I'ot pleasantly. Mr. Cresswell, what could I do in Sydney? You are too good--too kind----" she choked a little--, but----" My cousin, Mrs. Norman, would help you. She is great. One of the best and cleverest girls in the world--everyone goes to her to get pulled out of a hole." But what am I to her? How could I expect her to be troubled with my affairs? " Reina expostulated as with a rather stupid child. Ah! You don't know Ida. It is because she wants to help everyone that they go to her. Listen, I will bring a horse for you, and we can ride over to Brixton, and get on the south train there., It is a chance in a million if anyone you know sees you. Once with Ida, you will be all right." Are you so sure of that? How much have you told Mrs. Norman of me and my affairs? " asked the girl, with sudden suspicion.. Not a word. Do you think I would, without your permission?" reproachfully. But I shall go down and see her, and bring you back a letter from her. I think it would be better than writing.." There was a short silence. Then Reina said-- But what do you propose is to be done with me eventually? I can't exactly billet myself on the Normans for ever." I knew Reina Cordova well enough to detect the still unconvinced state of her mind, and I drew an easier breath. I think we can... 186 pages. Tanning due to age.
