India has an ancient and diverse tradition of ceramics, from simple cooking vessels to large, complex votive plaques. Compared with the pottery of other cultures, however, it is relatively under-appreciated. With a wealth of colour photographs, this book provides a comprehensive introduction to a vibrant and sophisticated craft, examining local traditions from Uttar Pradesh in the north to Tamil Nadu in the south, and offering fascinating insights into the lives, customs and production techniques of the nation's potters.
