More Info

This unprecedented survey of the most outstanding ceramics being created today offers a sweeping close-up look at the work of more than 260 artists from more than thirty countries. A special feature of this collection is the range of work from China, almost unknown outside of this country until now.

Organized by the distinctive categories of functional ceramics, figurative pieces, and installation works, the book gives a complete picture of the latest developments in each area of contemporary ceramic art. Chapters on materials, firing techniques, ethnic influences in design, and related topics delve into every aspect of ceramics creation that would be of interest to crafters, collectors, and other readers who are drawn to contemporary art. Stimulating essays by the author tie together the wide range of work shown in superbly detailed color photographs.

Artists included: John Mason, Jun Kaneko, Peter Voulkos, Ralph Bacerra, Rudy Autio, Ken Price, Peter Lane
