Pottery in Britain by Lloyd Laing
"Clay is an exceptionally versatile material. It can be made into many useful and beautiful objects, decorated in a splendid variety of ways and, if exposed to high temperatures, made into pottery. Both rich and poor have used pottery since the Stone Age, so the way the craft developed gives unusually clear insights into intimate details of lifestyle and outlooks in even remote periods.”
