Ceramic Art and Civilization

Ben Carter recently recorded a Tales of a Red Clay Rambler podcast interview with Paul Greenhalgh entitled “How Ceramics Shaped Civilization.”

I was so impressed with the discussion I purchased Paul Greenhalgh’s book “Ceramic Art and Civilization,” available online at Bloomsbury and Amazon. It is a meaty tome the size of a college 101-course textbook. I’m about 100 pages in and am finding the book extremely interesting and thought-provoking. I recommend the book.

Paul Greenhalgh is currently Executive Director at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts in Norwich, UK, part of the University of East Anglia, where he is also a professor of art history and museum studies. He formerly worked at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London as head of ceramics research. He has written several books and delivered lectures around the world, many of which he has posted on his website.
