Description: Chinese pottery has long been esteemed not only for its beauty and delicacy but also for the utility and efficiency evident in the potter's skill.

In this major work on Oriental ceramics and glazes, a leading authority on Far Eastern pottery traces the development of Chinese glazes and glazing techniques from antiquity to the modern era. Nigel Wood describes how glazes were made, provides an analysis of their composition, and shows how they can be duplicated today with common raw materials available in the West.

The book is lavishly illustrated with nearly three hundred photographs -- one hundred in full color. These depict examples of the Chinese arts as found in pottery ranging from simple earthenware jars excavated at Neolithic sites to exquisitely designed dishes found in imperial tombs. They also show examples of modern Western ware that employ these remarkable glazing techniques.

Chinese Glazes is an essential reference for scholar and collector alike. Its wealth of illustrative material and technical information make it an inspiring work as well for anyone seeking to recreate these astonishing wares.
