Synopses & Reviews
Architectural ceramics in the form of unglazed terracotta and glazed faience were used to decorate the interiors, fagades and roofs of a wide range of buildings in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In the first instance their use was functional, making the buildings weatherproof, fireproof and hygienic, but they could also be very decorative. This book charts the history of architectural ceramics, focusing on practical and decorative applications, on architects, designers and manufacturers, and on styles and techniques of production and decoration.
