Ceramic Traditions of South-East AsiaBook - 1989
The achievements of the potters of South-East Asia have not been widely acknowledged in the history of the region, rarely seen by early writers as a clear cultural identity of its own. This book attempts to provide an introduction to the internal histories of the glazed ceramic traditions ofSouth-East Asia. It examines the ceramics of Burma, Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam discussing the wares, kiln technology, and the evolution of forms and glazes. Local archaeological work in Thailand and investigations of kiln sites in Burma and Vietnam have enabled the author to incorporate muchnew material in his study, highlighting some of the important archaeological work currently being done in South-East Asia, and providing the reader with a new vista on his understanding of the region's ceramic traditions.
