All aspects of pottery and crockery have been examined in these plates, originally designed by Lucotte. Opening with a scene of the earthworks, the plates display both simple and ornate crockery, a variety of tools and pieces of equipment, and most notably different types of pottery wheels with accurate representations of kilns and a pottery mill. Lucotte's contribution to the plates volumes is far more extensive than to the text volumes, designing over 650 himself and writing around forty-five commentaries. He was heavily influenced by the Descriptions des arts et mà tiers of the Paris Acadà mie royale des sciences, as seen here. Although not working on one of his specialities, he approaches his work on pottery and crockery with his characteristic enthusiasm and attention to detail.
