I will be teaching a new University level course entitled Clay appreciation. It will have a hands-on component but will focus more on gaining an appreciation for the media: history, aesthetics, procedures,etc. I am looking for a teachers guide with visuals to assist in the lectures of history; past to present. Any ideas would be welcome.

Very interesting!!!!! Is this under the ceramics curriculum or offered in the art history or liberal arts department? What college? This is not a common topic offering... and bodes well.

In addition to my clay studio courses, I teach an upper level Japanese ceramic art history course through the art history department. I've had to amass my own images for that use...... I spend a bunch of time in Japan so that has made it easy.

Zoe,
Sounds like a great course. I taught History of World Ceramics. There are several good books out there. Plus lots of resources online.
I collected images for over forty years. Maybe you could post a request for historic images from people on the site. There are members and guests from all over the world. It is never too late to discover new things. I was on the Greek Island of Delos and saw an amazing 4 burner stove with an oven made out of clay...possibly from the 4th or 5th century BCE.
There are many teachers on this site who could possibly send you some images as well as techniques.
Marcia

I am trying once again to see if my response gets attached here....
Thankyou John and Marcia for your responses to my posts.
The ceramics history web class is awesome; just not very far completed.
My clay appreciation course is offered through Western New Mexico's art dpt; and fufills a gen ed requirement.
What are your favorite 3 books for ceramic appreciation/history?
Hoping this gets posted; I have responded many times and don't see my posts.
hmmm Zoe

here are three but there are many more focusing on specific areas

World ceramics; An Illustrated History by Robert J. Charleston
Ceramics of the World from 4000 BC to the present by Lorenzo Camusso and Sandro Bortone
Ceramics Source book Errol Manners and Hugo Morley-Fletcher (good illustrations but not as hefty as the two previously mentioned)
Some others are: Chinese Ceramics, Early Islamic Ceramics, Ceramics Iberique, Ancient Indian Pottery, Newcomb Pottery, Piccolpasso's Art of the Potter and so on. I have a good research library at home after
being in Academic Ceramics for 45 years.

Thanks Marcia!
I have been enjoying reading "CLAY" by Suzanne Staubach.....about the history of clay - accompanying ceramics - to sparkplugs, computer chips etc.
45 years; what a long relationship you have had! All the respect!

I think I have that but I got it after I retired in 2000 and never used it as a text.

I do have that one and am glad I already have it. The current price for it is really high.
