ABOUT THIS BOOK
While most surveys of contemporary art focus largely on two-dimensional work, there is a growing movement of emerging as well as established artists that are producing work in the ceramic medium, creating three-dimensional work that is groundbreaking in scope. Working in clay or porcelain and utilizing traditional methods such as wheel throwing or hand building, artists use their considerable talents — often honed in other media — to create unique work that is truly one-of-a-kind. Whether a sculptural piece, traditional vessel or a large-scale installation, they are constrained only by their imaginations and the nature of the material. Contains process shots of the artists at work as well as a voyeur’s glimpse into their studios.
