Abstract:

"This book offers a comprehensive survey of the ceramic craftsmen of Thailand, Malaysia, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar. The work, life and history of individuals and their communities is portrayed in a rich and fascinating read. It discusses the varied making and firing techniques common to these areas, and the aesthetics and function of the ceramics they produce. Vibrant pictures illustrate the range of pots that are produced in the different countries, as well as the stunning scenery surrounding the potteries." "Not only a beautifully illustrated and useful reference book for potters, it also provides documentation of the traditional craftsmanship and a way of life that looks set to disappear. In a region eager to embrace change and readily absorb western influence, the use of traditional pots is rapidly declining and these wonderful pots are considered of little value - even though they are disappearing. The Traditional Ceramics of Southeast Asia provides cultural insight into the life and work of the rural craftsman and is essential reading not just for potters, but for anyone with an interest in the anthropology and sociology of Southeast Asia."--BOOK JACKET.
