Abstract and Keywords

A brief discussion of two traditional approaches in the study of pottery production organization, ceramic ecology and typologies of production, identifies several key problems. In order to move forward and develop new strategies, it is proposed to adopt a symmetrical perspective, integrating methods and concepts from a variety of theoretical origins, including chaîne opératoire, object biography, relevant user groups or cadena, and entanglement. A brief case study outlining a proposed strategy for a relational approach to the study of ceramic production organization concludes the chapter.

Keywords: pottery production organization, relational approach, symmetrical perspective, entanglement, chaîne opératoire, object biography
