Introduction by Joseph Marioni and Foreword by Edward R. Quick. Photography by Roger Schreiber and Russell Johnson. From the dust wrapper- "Through the process of making his vessels- which are inspired by forms found in the ancient and Renaissance art of Italy- Marioni has entered a centuries-long artistic conversation about classical design, proportion, and aesthetics that dates back to the first Roman emperors who looked at Greek art and to the first Renaissance artists who rediscovered classical antiquity."
