In Britain today the output of excellent ceramics seems more eclectic than elsewhere. This stylish and wide-ranging survey comprises examples of clay art by one hundred major artists, covering the period from the late 1980s through 2009. Drawn from the Diane and Marc Grainer Collection, it includes works by Allison Britton, Edmund de Waal, Kate Malone, Grayson Perry, Julian Stair, Steve Dixon, and Nick Arroyave-Portela, among others. The selection balances functional objects and sculpture; hand-built, thrown, and molded techniques; varieties of scale and color; and cerebral and emotional content. All the ceramics here are rooted in the materiality of clay. The properties of the raw material, from its soft, malleable texture to the alchemy of slips and glazes, are at the core of the artists’ passion. And, as the text reveals, the younger generation is moving into new directions of art practice.

This new edition of Eric Yates-Owen and Robert Fournier's classic book on British studio potters' marks contains new and revised entries for many potters, with up-to-date information about the artists' styles, marks and addresses. Entries are arranged alphabetically, with each entry giving biographical data, information on the type of ceramics produced, the location of the pottery and dates indicating when marks have changed, as well as images of the different marks used. Three useful indexes enable the reader to search by mark rather than maker, in various categories such as creatures, monograms and signs. Revised by expert collector James Hazlewood, British Studio Potters' Marks, third edition, is the essential reference guide for collectors of British studio pottery.

Studio Pottery in Britain 1900-2005 by Jeffrey Jones offers a comprehensive account of the emergence, development and achievements of British studio pottery during the 20th century. Key movements, trends and personalities are all covered. This is an important topic because Britain was the world leader in the development of studio ceramics and the ramifications of these developments have had a global impact. The book looks at how pottery established itself within the wider context of the visual arts. The book examines the range of pottery produced under the heading of 'studio pottery' and discusses the way the work embodies and communicates the values of the makers. It also investigates how studio pottery has been presented to the world through photographs, exhibitions, books and publicity material.

For nearly a century British potters have invigorated traditional ceramic forms by developing or reinventing techniques, materials, and means of display. Things of Beauty Growing explores major typologies of the vessel--such as bowl, vase, and charger--that have defined studio ceramics since the early 20th century. It places British studio pottery within the context of objects from Europe, Japan, and Korea and presents essays by an international team of scholars and experts. The book highlights the objects themselves, including new works by Adam Buick, Halima Cassell, and Nao Matsunago, featured alongside works by William Staite Murray, Lucie Rie, Edmund de Waal, and others, many published here for the first time. Rounding out the beautifully illustrated volume is an interview with renowned collector John Driscoll and approximately fifty illustrated short biographies of significant makers.

Contemporary British Ceramics and the Influence of Sculpture

This book investigates how British contemporary artists who work with clay have managed, in the space of a single generation, to take ceramics from niche-interest craft to the pristine territories of the contemporary art gallery. This development has been accompanied (and perhaps propelled) by the kind of critical discussion usually reserved for the 'higher' discipline of sculpture. Ceramics is now encountering and colliding with sculpture, both formally and intellectually. Laura Gray examines what this means for the old hierarchies between art and craft, the identity of the potter, and the character of a discipline tied to a specific material but wanting to participate in critical discussions that extend far beyond clay.

Contemporary British Artists of African Descent and the Unburdening of a Generation

This book explores the notable roles that contemporary British artists of African descent have played in the multicultural context of postwar Britain. In four key case studies— Magdalene Odundo, Veronica Ryan, Mary Evans, and Maria Amidu—Monique Kerman charts their impact through analysis of works, activities, and exhibitions. The author elucidates each of the artists’ creative response to their unique experience and examines how their work engages with issues of history, identity, diaspora, and the distillation of diverse cultural sources. The study also includes a comparative discussion of art broadly defined as “black British,” in order to question assumptions concerning racial and ethnic identities that the artists often negotiate through their works—particularly the expectation or “burden” of representing minority or marginalized communities. Readers are thus challenged to unburden the artists herein and celebrate their work on its own terms.
