What makes the ceramic bowl such an enduring art form? It has everything: form, volume, surface, texture and colour, plus 10,000 years of history! It can be both useful and decorative, yet it is one of the simplest and most basic forms that potters make. This book provides a visual tour of how ceramists from around the world are interpreting this classic form today. The 500 masterful, inspired works presented in this book prove there are new things to say: the bowl is still being reinterpreted and reinvented every day! * FASCINATING compilation for arts and crafts ceramists and collectors of 500 of the most creative and astounding bowl designs you have ever seen. * FABULOUS SOURCEBOOK: pottery enthusiasts will enjoy the huge variety of shapes, surface treatments and techniques: traditional pit-fired, slip and earthenware, porcelain, salt-fired stoneware, hand-built and carved.
