NOLLERT, Angelika (ed.)
African Ceramics. A Different Perspective
This large-format publication provides information on 250 objects from across the wealth of forms and functions of African ceramics, as well as the different contexts of their creation.
Instead of a presentation organised by region, as is customary in ethnographic museums, this book offers a design-historical examination of the vessels and figures, starting from the objects themselves. This approach enables a new, fresh look at ceramic production in Africa, examining form, function, decor, and materiality.[publisher's note]
