Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nine master ceramic artists present their personal approaches to sculpting the human figure in a spectacular volume that's both technically illuminating and visually inspirational. The outstanding examples range from representational to abstract, diminutive to heroic. Nan Smith uses a range of mold-making techniques and precise slab construction, while Akio Takamori coil-builds a simplified figure inspired by a Velandaacute;squez painting and Christyl Boger creates a lavishly decorated, classically formal figurine. Each featured sculptor discusses the unique attractions and challenges of his or her method, and a series of detailed color photographs follows the artwork as it takes shape. In addition, there's a gallery of contemporary pieces selected by the major contributors. Glen R. Brown, a noted writer on ceramics, provides an insightful, thought-provoking introduction.

Synopsis:

This breathtaking collection answers that question 500 ways with works by new and emerging ceramicists that chronicle the ongoing exploration of the human form. From rustic creations to postmodern designs, from realistic to abstract, these pieces embody the diversity, imagination, and excellence of today's finest ceramic art.
