THE CERAMICS READER. Ed. by Kevin Petrie and Andrew Livingstone. Bloomsbury Academic, Bloomsbury Publishing, London, 2017. 704 pp. 24 x 18 cm. ISBN 9781472584427 In English.
Due date: April 2017. Paperbound edition also available; see Worldwide 175618. Publisher's description: The Ceramics Reader is an impressive collection of essays and text extracts which covers all the key areas of ceramics -- both past and present. It focuses on thoughts and discussions within ceramics from the last 20-30 years in particular, but also gives the reader a broad overview of the last 100 years. One aim of the book is to introduce contemporary debates, raise awareness and stimulate thought rather than to present a closed case for examination. Consequently the essays or extracts present different approaches to give a rounded viewpoint. Beginning with essential questions such as 'Why are ceramics important?' it also considers the field of ceramics from a range of perspectives -- as a cultural activity, ceramics as metaphor, where it sits within arts and crafts, within gender discussions, ceramics as sculpture, the use of ceramics as a vehicle for propaganda, ceramics within industry, within museums, and most recently as part of the 'expanded field' as a Fine Art medium and vehicle for ideas.
