It is a good time for art historians interested in the deep past to take notice of southern African ceramics. There is a remarkable absence of art historical literature exploring local prehistoric ceramics technology, artefacts and such indigenous knowledge systems as may have been expressed by prehistoric potters. Assessments of ceramics have long been central to archaeological investigations, but ceramics praxis has thus far largely been deemed peripheral to accounts of rock art, movements of peoples and general reviews of prehistory.
