... a good-looking book with substance, honesty and surprise as its strong attributes.
-Andy Christian


An in-depth study of 24 artists, their work and studios.
The book will look at the work, inspiration and the
studio of each potter. Almost a mini biography on many of the most
prominent and
exciting artists around, the book looks at artists making everything
from domestic ware to sculpture, and includes Clive Bowen, Walter
Keeler, Sandy Brown, Ken Eastman, Neil Brownsword and Claire Curneen
amongst many others. Both a visual and informative book, showcasing
work alongside
professional shots of the artists studios, with a well-written summary
of the artist. This book offers an ideal opportunity to review a
variety of some of the most interesting potters
together, throwing the book open to a wide audience of ceramic lovers.
