Contemporary artists around the world are turning to clay to shape their most innovative ideas into stunning works of art. These objects often have a practical function, but they also stand alone as conceptual artworks. Ceramics showcases approximately 30 contemporary artists whose work represents the radical transformation that this age-old medium has undergone in recent years. Imagine cups shaped like sea urchins, teapots that look like tissue paper, a terracotta typewriter. This volume is a vital guide to some of today s most exciting contemporary artists working in clay.
