dc.description.abstractThe book provides a major survey of the studio pottery movement which began in the early twentieth century and which still claims the attention of large numbers of people. Existing publications in the field are mainly descriptive in nature and surprisingly little primary research has so far been conducted, with correspondingly few books which focus specifically on this area of practice. This is the first book to evaluate the social, cultural, ideological and wider visual contexts in which studio potters have operated, and continue to operate. The research reveals a large amount of relatively raw, untapped archival material (both in public collections and in private hands). Interrogation of this material is complemented by interviews conducted with makers and surviving family members. The book brings attention to a series of unexamined, or in some cases untold, stories and foremost amongst these is the development of the notion of 'independence', which potters continue to negotiate both conceptually and in their studio practice. A detailed account of the potters and their work is offered, emphasizing the ideas that have driven the movement forward and the diverse range of artefacts that have been produced under the 'studio pottery' banner.en_US
