Zooms in on the crafts revival in the cities and presents a selection of young, influential and inspiring ceramicists from around the globe.
Clay is back: the age-old craft of ceramics is being embraced by a new generation of urban makers and collectors. Katie Treggiden explores the contemporary revival of pottery, focusing on six inspiring cities and their makers. More than thirty young and passionate ceramicists in New York, London, Tokyo, Copenhagen, Sydney and Sao Paulo introduce us to their work, their studios and their inspiration. Urban Potters will appeal to a broad audience – not only those who practice pottery themselves, but anyone who is interested in the handmade. The book also includes a practical source list of places to buy handmade ceramics in the six cities featured.
