Item Description...
Ceramics from China's Song Dynasty (960-1279) have always been prized by both Asian and Western collectors for their pure form, unique glazes, and inventive decoration. This long-awaited survey celebrates the beauty of these ceramics, telling the stories of their making and the material culture in which they were created. The book is illustrated with many of the finest examples of Song ware in the Western world, many of which look astonishingly modern. The text, including research never before published in English, is complemented by newly commissioned photography. AUTHOR BIO: Rose Kerr has recently retired as deputy keeper of the Asian department at the V&A. She is the author of several books on Chinese art and a world authority on Song ceramics.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A wonderful experience  Apr 24, 2008
With its historical sweep of more than 4000 years, Chinese ceramics is one of the great achievements of world art. It was, after all, the Chinese, who invented porcelain, and that is why we speak of "china" generically today.

In my judgment the wares of the Song Dynasty (960-1279) constitute the summit of this achievement. To be sure, they are something of an acquired taste, for their austerity lacks the immediate interest of the Ming blue-and-white and the spectacular show pieces of the Qing Dynasty. Still, in the splendid photographs of this book, one can attain a kind of secular mystical experience, which has no parallel that I know of.

The text is good too, neither too long nor too short, not too technical, not too simple. Carefully, painlessly the author presents the information gleaned from recent research and excavation in the People's Republic. For anyone interested in Chinese ceramics this book is a must.
