Today is the release of my first book Ceramics: Contemporary Artists Working in Clay which can now be purchased online. This was easily the biggest project I’ve worked on, certainly the longest and required a lot more stamina than blogging! I wrote this book to show the public what I was seeing online: artists bringing incredible creativity, inventiveness and liveliness to ceramics. I saw my role as curator and sought to include a diverse collection of artwork being made today. The book is by no means a survey of contemporary ceramics but more of a snapshot of an evolving, growing, reinvigorated art form.
I’d like to thank all of the artists whose work is included in this book. I’d also like to thank Danielle Krysa for supporting this project and writing the forward. And I’d like to thank Chronicle Books for picking up the book and for their designer who did a knock-out job designing the book and it’s incredible cover with its cut-outs.
