Publisher Comments:

The successful 500 series shines a spotlight on todays most breathtaking ceramic sculptures. Selected from more than 8,000 entries by the distinguished art critic, historian, and professor Glen R. Brown—an elected member of the International Academy of Ceramics in Geneva—these exquisite works will inspire both beginning and professional ceramists, as well as collectors and enthusiasts. They include Esther Shimazus hand-built, Asian-influenced nudes; Von Venhuizens mixed-media, wheel-thrown stoneware, and Katys Rushs slip-cast and press-molded porcelain. Every work is amazing.

 

 

Book News Annotation:

Ranging from precisely representational through impressionistic to totally abstract, some single small pieces and some large installations or arrays, the works of ceramic art are illustrated by color photographs. Captains cite the artist, title, date, size and dimensions, material and technique, and photographer. The index of artists notes their location.
