Ceramics have kept pace with - or even led - new movements in art, from
Art Nouveau, Art Deco, the Bauhaus and Futurism, through Abstract
Expressionism, Pop and Performance, to Land Art and Installation Art.
From orientalism and colour theory to modernism, postmodernism and the
profuse diversity of approaches that has characterized the end of the
20th century, this book covers Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, the USA and
Japan. The work of exceptional individuals is appraised - including
Taxile Doat, Clarice Cliff, Susie Cooper, Bernard Leach, Isamu Noguchi,
Hans Coper, Lucie Rie, Joan Miro, Pablo Picasso, Peter Voulkos and
The use of ceramics in other disciplines is given close attention: sculptors such as Antony Gormley and Tony Cragg, and even architects, including Frank Gehry, have made ceramics central to their practice.
