KIRKUS REVIEW

Those who can't get enough of Picasso's ceramics will find this ""as complete as possible"" a roundup with glossy color photos and a fulsome, high-flown text by the professional potter who supervised production of his work. Seeing it en masse is not uninstructive, however, The satyr faces looking up from plate after plate, one wittier than the next, attest to the Master's exuberance and invention; and occasional pieces--the bowls cradling a bullfight as in an arena, the figure vases and jugs--make apt use of ceramic forms and techniques. But not nearly everything is worth showcase treatment, and the text is worthless altogether.
