About the Authors
  • This beautifully illustrated book gives a colorful impression of the vitality and diversity of English pottery made between the late thirteenth and the late twentieth century. It describes the main types of earthenware and stoneware, and discusses the most important technical, stylistic and social influences that shaped their development. The sixty-four pieces of pottery shown in a historical sequence are in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, which houses one of the world's most extensive and varied collections of English pottery.
