Ceramics of Seduction: Glazed wares from Southeast Asia, provides an opportunity to see and learn about the broad range of wares, mainly glazed, produced in kilns located in five countries of present day Southeast Asia; Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar (Burma), Thailand and Laos. Each country developed a fascinating ceramics tradition that reflects the creativity of their people and the skills of the anonymous potters. To appreciate their beauty one should keep in mind the main characteristics of these wares: simplicity of form, earthly qualities of the clay and glaze, and restrained decoration.
Ceramics of Seduction illustrates some 280 pieces from the Francisco Capelo collection, assembled in the last 15 years and by whom a short foreword is included. This book is enriched greatly by an insightful essay by Dawn E. Rooney, an eminent art historian of Southeast Asia.
