Table of Contents
Earthenware with an opaque tin glaze was introduced to France in the mid-sixteenth century from Italy, where it had been made for several centuries. The French had already embraced the imported Italian wares, so when Italian emigre ceramists settled in France, native manufactories flourished. Faience and soft-paste porcelain were successive attempts to mimic true hard-paste porcelain imported from Asia. Although Europe would eventually discover the secret to producing porcelain in the early eighteenth century, both faience and soft-paste ceramics endured. And although these wares were created to emulate porcelain, faience and soft-paste porcelain ultimately became distinctive and sought-after ceramics in their own right.
Daily Pleasures emphasizes not only the aesthetics of faience and soft-paste porcelain but also its functionality. The book features essays on the MaryLou Boone collection, 18th-century French ceramics, faience and its makers, soft-paste porcelain and its makers, and an entry for each piece in the collection.
