Attractive pottery, robust and utilitarian, abounds in South-east Asia - both locally produced wares and items imported from China and Japan. An integral part of daily life for more than 5,000 years, the pottery has always been closely bound to the culture, religion and domestic needs of the people, and tells us a great deal about their way of life. In this introductory guide Dawn Rooney describes the origin, production, and use of the pottery, and brings the story up to date with details of the methods and materials currently in use.
