A worldwide survey of the most distinctive, intensely creative and innovative recent work, this book makes sense of a vast and increasingly diverse area of burgeoning talent, ranging from makers of functional objects, such as teapots and tableware, to those who explore the boundaries and possibilities of clay as an artistic medium.

Over the last decade the gulf that traditionally existed between the realms of ‘fine art’ and ‘craft’ has narrowed, resulting in a shift in perception of what ceramics can be and can mean. As a consequence all areas of ceramic practice have been revitalized and the creative possibilities that artists, lured by the plastic and tactile qualities of clay, have brought with them into ceramics have influenced ceramists of all backgrounds across the globe. This book showcases the exceptional and original work that has resulted.

Contemporary Ceramics covers every aspect of practice and includes work of all scales – from a few centimetres to vast room-sized installations.

An essential and invaluable analysis of work from the last ten years, with over 600 stunning illustrations, and complete with biographies of the featured ceramists and a list of selected art galleries and museums with collections of contemporary ceramics, this comprehensive survey will be an indispensable guide for ceramists, students and collectors alike.
