“The
human figure has been represented in clay throughout history and
continues to evolve today. Artists are working with the figure in new
ways, playing with materials and forms, and making use of new
technologies to produce challenging and unconventional work, from the
intact whole figure to the fragmented, hybrid and abstract. Divided by
broad themes, each chapter features a variety of different expressive
works from a range of international ceramic artists. This book explores
the role of figurative ceramics through history and in contemporary
contexts, and also reveals the methods of six key contemporary artists,
using how-to images to illustrate their techniques. “
