These works date back to the 1880s and each one, in its own way, illustrates the audacious experimentations carried by Deck throughout his carreer and reveals the challenges of 19th century ceramics.

Celine Ventura Teixera, L’Azulejo, la genèse d‘un art.   Regards croisés sur les ateliers de la péninsule ibérique au temps des Philippe (1556-1665)    517 pp.   ISBN : 979-10-92054-87-3

Habillant les murs d’églises, de palais et de patios, Céline Ventura Teixeira l’azulejo a transcendé les frontières et les siècles. Il constitue non seulement une pratique ornementale représentative des goûts d’une époque mais aussi l’expression d’un savoir-faire développé par des faïenciers qui n’ont eu de cesse de perfectionner le geste et l’objet. La mise en regard des ateliers de Lisbonne, Talavera de la Reina et Séville fait émerger de nouvelles problématiques liées aux processus de création issus de plusieurs savoir-faire et appartenant aussi bien à la sphère artisanale qu’artistique. Successivement mentionnés dans la documentation archivistique comme simples potiers puis comme faïenciers et enfin comme peintres d’azulejos, ces « faiseurs d’images émaillées » voient leur statut social évoluer progressivement. Les migrations d’artistes, la circulation de modèles, la valeur et le rôle politique attribués à l’azulejo ou encore l’impact de la politique religieuse sur les programmes ornementaux font partie des axes privilégiés de cette étude afin de reconstituer les relations entre les ateliers de la Péninsule.

Azulejaria na Região Centro (The Art of the Tile in the Central Region of Portugal). All texts but one in Portuguese. Published by the Council of Figueira da Foz, ed.: Maria de Lurdes Craveiro and Inês Maria Jordão Pinto, Figueira da Foz, May 2019, 192 pages, ISBN 978-989-8903-10-5

The book contains the texts, with colour illustrations, of some of the presentations given at a symposium in Figueira da Foz in 2014. The ‘authors’ are mainly Portuguese tile experts, but Johan Kamermans’ presentation is also printed here (in English) as well as a speech given by Francine Stoffels (in Portuguese) about the relations between Portugal and The Netherlands in the field of tiles, and particularly her own connection with the Portuguese tile world.

Johan Kamermans, Susana Varela Flor and Inês Maria Jordão Pinto write about Dutch tiles in Portugal. Maria Alexandra Trindade Gago da Câmara examines how Portuguese azulejos have been studied through the ages, as well as new methods of research. The presentations given by Diana Gonçalves dos Santos (our guide in Porto during the Dutch tile excursion in 2011), Alexandre Nobre Pais and Raúl Moura Mendes deal with the various types of tiles manufactured in Coimbra. With this publication new research into both Portuguese and Dutch tiles has been made available.

Susana Fonseca – Azulejos com História. (Portuguese, English, Spanish, French) objecto Anónimo, 2016, ISBN 978-989-8256-73-7. 145 pp. The first 90 pages of short texts and beautiful photographs guide you through the history of tiles in Portugal from 1500 to the present day. The next 55 pages contain mostly photographs arranged according to theme and location. Techniques of manufacture are explained, too. Indispensable for people who wish to make a tile tour of Portugal. All the addresses are given.

In recent years a series of interesting and beautifully illustrated tile books have been published by Centro Atlântico (www.centroatlantico.pt). This was founded by photographer Libório Manuel Silva, who focuses on cultural subjects and heritage. He takes all the photos himself and Rosário Salema de Carvalho does all the editing of the tile books discussed below. She is a researcher and executive coordinator of Az – Rede de Investigação em Azulejo from ARTIS – Instituto de História de Arte, Faculdade de Letras, Universidade de Lisboa. Titles follow below.                         http://redeazulejo.letras.ulisboa.pt/redeazulejaria%5Fen/

Azulejos – Maravilhas de Portugal / Wonders of Portugal (bilingual edition), various authors, ed.: Libório Manuel Silva and Rosário Salema de Carvalho, Centro Atlântico, 2017, 335 pages, ISBN 978-989-615-213-0 . 

Some twenty specialists describe 40 locations from five centuries of history and all regions of Portugal: from the palaces in Sintra with their mudéjar tiles to the metropolitan stations dating from the end of the twentieth century. On our journey we pass the tile-clad façades of Lisbon, the art nouveau in Aveiro, the sixteenth-century tile pictures in Quinta de Bacalhôa and the palace of the Marquises of Fronteira, to mention but a few attractions. The general introduction by José Meco, with a timeline, gives all locations their place in the continuous history of the Portuguese azulejo.

Azulejos à Mesa / Azulejos in Restaurants (bilingual edition), various authors, ed.: Libório Manuel Silva and Rosário Salema de Carvalho, Centro Atlantico, 2018, 112 pages, ISBN: 978-989-615-215-4   

More light-hearted information - but indispensable for the epicures among us - is provided by Azulejo à Mesa, which describes seventeen restaurants with extraordinary tiles. Often situated in former monasteries or palaces, these include the well-known Cervejaria Trindade, Casa do Alentejo and Mesa de Frades in Lisbon, and the Pousada Mosteiro de Guimarães, where the food has been relished by participants of the Dutch tile excursions to Portugal.

Azulejo– O que é / What is (bilingual edition), ed.: Libório Manuel Silva and Rosário Salema de Carvalho, Centro Atlântico, 2nd ed. 2018, 112 pages, ISBN: 978-989-615-222-2

Over fifty renowned tile specialists, ceramicists, architects, collectors and other tile buffs try to give a satisfactory - and sometimes quite humorous - answer to this question. Each left-hand page has a text in the two languages, each right-hand page shows a splendid photograph of tile pictures and panels in such varied places as Tangier, Angra (Azores), Funchal (Madeira), Olivença and Seville (Spain), and of course locations in Portugal. The Portuguese, Brazilian, Spanish, Moroccan and Dutch authors include: Dora Alcântara, José Berardo, Fábio Carvalho, Feliciano David, Johan Kamermans, José Meco, João Manuel Mimoso, Alexandre Nobre Pais, João Pedro Monteiro, Alfonso Pleguezuelo, Vítor Serrão, Hans van Lemmen, Ana Viegas and Tiago Montepegado. Beautiful photos, which provide a sense of joyful recognition.

‘Terracotta: Past, Present and Future’, Midland Hotel, Manchester, 26th-27th March 2020

Organised by the Tiles & Architectural Ceramics Society, this conference aims to provide a historical context for
the use of terracotta and faïence in architectural structures and the latest information on the restoration and
refurbishment of buildings bearing these materials. It will also, importantly, promote the use of terracotta and
faïence in contemporary new-build projects. Leading practitioners in the field of architectural conservation,
manufacture of terracotta and faïence, and designers of new-build construction featuring these materials will be
among the panel of speakers. The conference will include a tour of some of the important buildings in central
Manchester as well as a visit to a major manufacturer of both conservation and new-build architectural terracotta
and faïence.
