Ceramics - Contemporary Artists Working in Clay
This beautiful modern volume presents the work of 45 contemporary artists who have turned to clay to shape their most innovative ideas into stunning works of art. From cups shaped like crystals to a tree trunk made of porcelain and stoneware planters painted to look like ladies, popular curator and blogger Kate Singleton collects here whimsical pieces with narrative, graphic, curious and organic qualities that blur the line between fine art, design and craft. Featuring a unique package with a die-cut, foil-stamped cover, this book is a vital guide to an evolving medium and a thoughtful present for those interested in the future of art and craft.
