The firing of clay is one of the most significant developments in the history of humankind. It is a technological advance, now taken so much for granted, that many have forgotten the ancient power that fire and change exercised over the lives of our ancestors and their imaginations. This book is an attempt to redress that balance by investigating the place of firing in a contemporary context of myth, poetics, philosophy and technology.
