This magnificent book explores the meaning of Khmer ceramics both in terms of their function and their aesthetics, drawing on the 160 superlative pieces collected by Yothin Tharahirunchot over a 30-year period.
Renowned ceramics expert Dawn F. Rooney provides an authoritative discussion of each piece while the two Thai scholars, Krisda Pinsri and Pariwat Thammapreechakorn discuss hitherto understudied areas of Khmer ceramics.
