Publisher's description: Scorched Earth will be the first comprehensive history of fine art potteries in southern Africa, with a focus on pioneer ceramic studios and workshops. This encyclopedic revisionist history of an often overlooked sector of the South African art and design world explores the work of 30 potteries that produced high-quality ceramic wares from 1900 to 1980. The book promises to be the definitive history of southern African ceramics, giving voice to many artists whose work is little known in the wider art world. It contains over 300 photographs, a comprehensive list of studios, workshops and potters, makers' marks, and a wide-ranging essay on the history of this art form in southern Africa.
