'carolinda tolstoy - ceramics'
by Ernst J. Grube

"She is undoubtedly the major contemporary representative of a considerably English 'Orientalist' tradition. Her work has justly been recognised as perpetuating the fascination of the Western World with Safavid art, with her indebtedness to a truly original interpretation of the Ottoman tradition."
