Featuring six pieces of pottery from around the world, this book explores different types of story; from Greek legend in Pablo Picasso's Pan plaque to Chinese legend in the Fo porcelain lion-dog. Each piece of pottery is looked at in detail, and a more general introduction to the medium provides a historical context.
Step-by-step projects show children how to create their own ceramic masterpieces, using the techniques of the art form. Cast a plaque, make a Nasca pot or produce your own plate!
The Stories in Art series explores the narratives told through different art mediums. A great introduction to the history of art for children at Key Stage 2.
