From the Publisher
The beautiful qualities of porcelain and bone china have fascinated patrons, collectors, and makers for centuries. These two materials are often perceived as one and the same clay, for they both possess qualities of whiteness, strength, and translucency; however, each has its own particular characteristics, which merit further exploration and discussion. Porcelain is a well–documented subject, both in traditional and contemporary terms. Bone china, on the other hand, has historically been labeled an “industrial” material, which has narrowed its appeal. Porcelain and Bone China
redresses the balance by demonstrating how these clays have played an equally important role within and outside the industrial domain. Sasha Wardell studied ceramics at England’s Bath Academy of Art and Staffordshire Polytechnic as well as the École des Arts Décoratitifs in Limoges, France.
