The Author Of This Book , Writes Professor N.K. Bose , Has Applied Some Methods In The Study Of Indian Culture Which&. Have Not Been Used By Any Other Student Of Cultural Anthropology In This Country. His Method Of Correlation Of Material Culture With The Total Cultural System Marks A Departure From The Conventional Studies Of Cultural Processes. He Has Suggested New Methods Of Reconstructing History, And His Data On Contemporary Pottery Making Afford A Reassessment Of Indian Archaeological Materials.The Author S Extensive Experience With Inter-Disciplinary Inquiry Yields Insight. From A Detailed Analysis Of The Ethnographic Data On Pottery Making, He Makes Some Significant Observations: There Is Continuity In Potter-Craft Tradition In India, Traceable From The Pre-Historic Times. The Survival Of The Ethnic Groups Of Potters, Well Within Their Respective Technological Zones Of Pre-Historic Pottery Making, Makes The Aryanization Of India Doubtful. Different Regions Of India Have Evolved Their Own Indigenous Cultures Providing Extreme Diversity To The Material Base Of Indian Society-Their Unity Lies In The Basic Philosophy Of Life, In The Higher Forms Of Culture. To An Average Indian, The Diversity Of Cultures-Food, Dress, Language, Worship-Does Not Really Matter, So Long As He Believes That Every Way Of Life Has Its Own Contribution To Humanity, And That Before The Inexorable Law Of Nature, Every Being Has An Equal Right To Survive Through The Full Course Of Its Cosmic Life. This Idealization Of Diversity Has Helped India Develop A Tradition Of Tolerance, Which Is The Soul Of Her Civilization.Apart From Its Contribution To Anthropology, The Book Will Be Of Particular Interest To Historians Of Culture And Philosophers Of Social History

Br>A wealth of ideas and works from top ceramists who have taught at the prestigious Penland School of Crafts make this book an indispensable resource. These ten talented artists, well known and respected for the particular techniques they have mastered, demonstrate their methods in a series of instructive photographs. They also discuss their interest and affinity with different influences and methods, and present work by other artists whose work they admire. Stunning art, innovative techniques, and thoughtful personal essays illustrate the breadth of contemporary ceramic practice for both artists and collectors. Ten of the finest ceramists in the field-all of whom have taught at Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina-here offer master classes in a clay technique for which they are well known. Photographs and insightful commentary capture the skilled, innovative, and sometimes surprising ways they work and think. Youll learn as much about their materials and processes as you do about their influences and aspirations. Clara "Kitty" Couch creates one of her signature large, coil-built terra cotta pots, showing how form and process mature together. Angelica Pozo makes tiles with her own template method, then shows how to build up a relief surface and add vitreous glaze painting to it. Michael Sherrill demonstrates techniques he uses to extrude and carve porcelain forms that become components of his ceramic sculpture. Tom Spleth illustrates mold making, from carving the original plaster form to building the molds to realizing a finished slip-cast porcelain assemblage. Linda Arbuckle demonstrated with her majolica brushwork technique how she marries functional form and decorative surface. Nick Joerling alters his wheel-thrown vessels with straightforward cutting and reshaping methods. Cynthia Bringle shares how she joins wheel-thrown sections to make very large vessels. Joe Bova creates a joined pair of realistic relief sculptures of human forms from clay slabs. Sergei Isopov builds a figurative slab sculpture, then demonstrates his techniques for detailed narrative underglaze illustration. Mary Barringer marks and unifies clay surfaces with rich slip and textural surface treatments on functional forms. Also, a gallery of complementary work from other artists provides additional inspiration. Content: Introduction by Jean W.

This volume emphasizes the complex interactions between ceramic containers and people in past and present contexts. Pottery, once it appears in the archaeological record, is one of the most routinely recovered artifacts. It is made frequently, broken often, and comes in endless varieties according to economic and social requirements. Moreover, even in shreds ceramics can last almost forever, providing important clues about past human behavior. The contributors to this volume, all leaders in ceramic research, probe the relationship between humans and ceramics. Here they offer new discoveries obtained through traditional lines of inquiry, demonstrate methodological breakthroughs, and expose innovative new areas for research. Among the topics covered in this volume are the age at which children begin learning pottery making; the origins of pottery in the Southwest U.S., Mesoamerica, and Greece; vessel production and standardization; vessel size and food consumption patterns; the relationship between pottery style and meaning; and the role pottery and other material culture plays in communication. Pottery and People provides a cross-section of the state of the art, emphasizing the complete interactions between ceramic containers and people in past and present contexts. This is a milestone volume useful to anyone interested in the connections between pots and people.
