ABSTRACT
For anyone interested in contemporary ceramics or Islamic pottery, the book "Carolinda Tolstoy Ceramics," is the book of the decade. The writer of the book is Ernst J. Grube, a world authority on Islamic art, with a track record as professor emeritus of Venice University, president of the East West Foundation, New York, and first curator of the Islamic Art Department at the Metropolitan Museum, New York. In his introduction to the book, Grube demonstrates how rather than draw on far Eastern sources, as so many of her contemporaries have done, writer Leo Nikolayevich Tolstoy has continued and expanded the Islamic ceramic heritage in a unique way.
