Ceramics: A Fragile History

 'Ceramics: A Fragile History' is part of Handmade in Britain - a year-long season exploring the history of British decorative arts, a collaboration between the Victoria & Albert Museum and the BBC.

 New TV series begins tonight at 9pm (UK) on BBC4
with commentary by leading British ceramicists such as Edmund de Waal and Grayson Perry

"Ceramics are where art meets function - one of our oldest and most fundamental art forms, that sits at the centre of our homes. The first film in this three-part series looks at a history of domestic pottery in Britain from Tudor times onwards, tracing the evolution of its different techniques and styles, and examining what our pots can tell us in intimate detail how preceeding generations lived and saw themselves."

A beautifully illustrated overview of the Australian marsupials, a delicate balance between them is in ecological and evolutionary context and explores their place in Australian history and culture.
