'Lavishly illustrated with superb colour photographs, Contemporary Ceramics in South Africa includes almost 100 actively working artists and examines the work of about 80 of them in detail. The treatment is not historical but focuses on the current or recent work of each artist. Interspersed throughout the book are photographic features - for example on teapots and decorated plates - which provide interesting opportunities for comparison between artists working within the same genre. Biographical and technical information is kept to a minimum in the main text, being assembled at the end of the book in an appendix of concise biographies and a glossary of terms.' - Editors note
