From clay to kiln and everything in between, this book is an exploration into the techniques and processes of forty-five ceramicists working in Australia today.
Earth and fire represent the two elements that produce a ceramic object.

Creating everything from wood-fired and fine porcelain wares, sculptured vases, everyday cups, bowls and plates, to jewellery and wall pieces, these artists work in a wide range of styles and mediums to create their ceramics.

Although the methods vary, the overall sentiment is that the earth and fire that the artists use to make their objects are the ultimate masters. Just when they think they know one thing, the clay, glaze and heat will teach them another. There will always be more to learn. Working with clay is, quite simply, humbling.
