The essays in this book grew out of a meeting of international scholars, curators, and potters who came together in 1991 to share knowledge and ideas about the Koerner collection of European ceramics, which is housed at the University of British Columbia Museum of Anthropology. 
This collection of ceramics is unique in Canada. It covers a range, both chronological and technical, that is rare in North American collections. The 600 pieces in the collection were made between 1500 and 1900 and were found in kitchens and dining-rooms as tools of food preparation, serving, and display; in cellars as storage containers; in churches as religious figures and containers for holy water; in pharmacies as containers of medicine; and in palaces as tiled stoves. In their many variations they represent an integral part of human history.
