Contemporary Ceramic Art


Ralph Skea

ISBN 9780500295786

Ceramic art is now taking centre stage in contemporary galleries. Often integrating traditional modelling, firing and glazing techniques into their output, the 90 artists featured here invite us to look at ceramics in a different way.

Whether creating monumental installations or intricate miniatures, imaginary beasts or life-size human figures, they blur the borders between art and craft, sometimes conceiving witty or unnerving twists on traditional ceramic forms, sometimes using cutting-edge technology, conceptual thinking and new platforms to push the boundaries of clay and broaden its appeal. Packed with works that are questioning and provocative, disturbing and seductive, this is a good overview of a booming field.
