CERAMICS



"Gilded Vessel-
The Lustrous Life and Art of Beatrice Wood"

by Garth Clark, Beatrice Wood


Top of page
Reviews:
Truly Beautiful Life, March 22, 2002
Reviewer: Donna Ragsdale (see more about me) from Green River, Wyoming
THE GILDED VESSEL is a beautiful book about an amazing woman and potter. Her life is more wonderful than any fiction and her pottery is exquisite. The only flaw is that it is too short; I want more.

From the Publisher
"Garth Clark's friendship with Beatrice Wood began in 1978, when he interviewed her for his book A Century of Ceramics in the United States: 1878-1978. It was a turning point for both. Wood, a ceramic artist and famously free spirit of the Dada era, was 85 years old. Although she was still producing pottery, her sales were slow and she despaired over her financial future. Clark, a much admired art historian and author, became her patron and close friend. Three years later, when the Garth Clark Gallery opened in Los Angeles, its premiere exhibition was Beatrice Wood: A Very Private View. The show - a financial and commercial success - was the first of dozens of Beatrice Wood exhibitions hosted by Clark over the next seventeen years, until her passing in 1998 at 105 years of age." Now, three years after her death, Clark has produced an illustrated memoir of his cherished friend. Gilded Vessel presents Wood's incomparable ceramic forms in photographs of exceptional beauty and clarity; it is the first book to feature this work extensively in large-format color reproductions. Biographical photographs document her friendships with fellow artists ranging from Marcel Duchamp to Anais Nin to Lily Tomlin. These images are perfectly complemented by Clark's wry and affectionate narrative.

"Ceramics"
by Phillip Rawson

Top of page
Reviews:
You Will Want To Own This Book, December 11, 2000
Reviewer: S. Rossiter from Pennsyltucky, USA
Every potter and vessel maker, every student and teacher of ceramics, every person interested in ceramics should read CERAMICS by Philip Rawson. In fact, you will want to own a copy of this book so you can re-read it and loan it to other people. (I received no compensation for that statement.) CERAMICS is an exceptional source for expanding your knowledge of and vocabulary for critically viewing, appreciating, discussing, and writing about ceramics.

In CERAMICS, Philip Rawson, a prolific writer and art critic, gives a fascinating and lucid examination of the evolution and aesthetics of ceramic form. He states, "One of the prime reasons why ceramics is such an interesting art is that it fills the gap which now yawns between art and life as most people understand their relationship."(6) Rawson then introduces ideas critical to looking at and fully understanding ceramics such as the relationship of function to the origins of most ceramic forms and how that relationship affects our experience of ceramic objects. He also addresses the inherent attraction of a recognizable material transformed by the human hand into a new object with symbolic or metaphorical value.

"The Unexpected: Artists' Ceramics of the 20th Century: The Kruithuis Museum's Collection"

by Janet Koplos (editor)
172 Pages


Top of page

Publisher Comments:
Throughout the 20th century, prominent artists from Pablo Picasso to A. R. Penck have experimented with ceramics. The works they produced have complemented and often expanded upon their styles and techniques in painting and sculpture, but they have rarely been studied by art historians. Here for the first time are ceramic works by 23 European artists, all from the extensive collection of artists' pottery at the Museum Het Kruithuis in the Netherlands -- the only such collection in the world. Ceramics by Miro, Leger, Chagall, Braque, Dufy, and Cocteau are beautifully illustrated and discussed, as is the work of Karel Appel, Asger Jorn, and other members of the mid-century CoBrA movement, and that of contemporary artists such as Mimmo Paladino and Bruce McLean. Essays set the ceramics in context, and documentary photographs show the artists at work

"Color and Fire: Defining Moments in Studio Ceramics, 1950-2000"

by joe Lauria, Garth Clark et al
240 Pages


Top of page


Book Description
Drawn from the collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Color & Fire: Defining Moments in Studio Ceramics, 1950-2000 accompanies a major touring exhibition on the history of ceramic art in the second half of the twentieth century. Illustrated with more than 250 color photographs, Color & Fire explores the roles of key artists and the major stylistic movements they developed during the decades of pioneering innovation.
Based on the premise that the history of studio ceramics can be regarded as a series of breakthroughs or milestones, Color & Fire highlights the moments when talented artists came together to produce work in clay that challenged traditions and promoted aesthetic freedom. In the early years of the twentieth century, pottery was primarily mass-produced in factories, where specialists in wheel throwing, glazing, and kiln firing worked under a system of divided labor. In the 1930s and 1940s, ceramists such as the renowned team of Gertrud and Otto Natzler began to perform all of these exacting functions-from mixing clay to firing kilns-in their own studios, creating one-of-a-kind pots, breathtaking in design and construction. Since that time, ceramic art has followed a metaphorical journey from the earth to the air, as concerns with utility, materials, and techniques have given way to abstract conceptual considerations.

"Postmodern Ceramics"

by Mark DelVecchio, Garth Clark
224 Pages


Top of page

From the Publisher
Postmodern Ceramics provides a stunning international overview of the richness and diversity of ceramic art since c. 1980. Mark Del Vecchio surveys the achievement of over 130 masters of contemporary ceramics from more than twenty-five countries, among them Ralph Bacerra, Adrian Saxe, Betty Woodman, Akio Takamori, and Andrew Lord, analyzing their various approaches by presenting the work in twelve themes: the postmodern look; post-minimalism; pattern and decoration; the multiple vessel; organic abstraction; the real/super-real; history, culture, and time; the image and the vessel; the vessel as image; figural sculpture; abstract sculpture; and post-industrialism. Garth Clark, perhaps the best-known ceramic historian in the world, shows in his Introduction how this great burst of creative energy and innovation provided an escape route from the unconsummated, antagonistic, and demoralizing relationship that had existed between ceramics and modernism.
Complete with illustrated biographies of each of the artists and a detailed bibliography, the book brims with colorful ceramics and provides the depth of information necessary for it to become the standard reference work for professionals and amateurs, makers and collectors.

"Ceramic Form: Design & Decoration"

Publisher Comments:
In this new, revised edition of Ceramic Form (1988), the author explains the working methods of more than 150 contemporary potters and considers their approaches to design and decoration of bowls and bottles through the use of color, pattern, and texture. A unique directory of forms in profile make this at once a history and guide for collectors, an inspirational library of forms for potters, and an invaluable illustrated source for collectors.*

Library Journal
Lane documents his visually stimulating study of ceramic form with the work of over 150 potters from around the world. Though he limits his presentation to bottles and bowls on the theory that these shapes provide the basis for the majority of vessels, his offering is generous. Chosen works exemplify not only a wide range of forms but also the variety of feeling and technique that marks contemporary ceramics. Lane explains many of these techniques throughout the text, further explaining how the artists translate their sources of inspiration into original work. A rewarding book for all those interested in the ceramic arts, especially potters wishing to explore a visual vocabulary. Lucy Portland, Me.

"Teapots Transformed: Exploration of an Object "

by Leslie Ferrin
126 pages


Top of page

From the Publisher
Teapots are complex objects steeped in world culture and art history. Their appeal -- conjuring images of afternoons in homey tearooms or elegant gatherings in grand hotels -- is universal. But a new generation of teapots has stood tradition on its ear. As author Leslie Ferrin says, "Today the teapot has one foot in the kitchen and the other in the art world."
For the artist, making a teapot provides daunting challenges. As the various parts -- body, lid, handle, spout and foot -- are assembled, each creator must solve technical difficulties within the context of design, function and scale. As a result, teapots are the objects with which artists in all media demonstrate the heights of their technical and creative abilities.

Teapots Transformed: Exploration of an Object tells the tale of this art form, from the traditional, functional teapot to an eclectic mix of contemporary designs. The exhilarating collection is presented in more than 120 vivid full-color photographs. The book will delight tea drinkers around the world, while providing inspiration for artists and a visual feast for the growing number of teapot collectors.

Teapots certainly are transformed!, January 7, 2001
Reviewer: Andy Titcomb from St.Mabyn, Cornwall, United Kingdom

"The Artful Teapot"

by Garth Clark
256 pages


Top of page

Publisher Comments:
Based on its universal appeal and everyday use, tea has inspired the creation of exquisite objets d’art; above all, the spouted, steaming engine of hospitality: the teapot. In fact, the teapot has drawn widespread attention from the world's leading designers and artists for centuries because it is what French sculptor Arman calls one of the key objects of our time.

This delightful book celebrates the chameleon-like form of the teapot, and how it is considered not only an icon for hospitality but also an inventive vehicle for artistic expression. The Artful Teapot features, in full, lavish color, more than 200 enchanting teapots representing its 500-year history of enjoyment and use... Here are artful teapots that balance form, surface, and function in search of beauty...revolutionary teapots seeking — fascinatingly but fruitlessly — to improve on this most perfect invention...teapots inspired by natural forms...teapots made from surprising materials like dollar bills, glass beads, and soda cans...teapots used as a format for politics or propaganda...teapots using animals or people as their subject...and last but not least, the teapot created purely for art's sake — pots removed from function, where tea evaporates and imagination replaces the fragrant leaf as content. Plus, fascinating text written by Garth Clark, the preeminent scholar of modern ceramics, provides an appealing discussion of these objets d’art that is as provocative, playful, and profound as the teapots themselves.

Teapots selected for this book include both the delightful and unexpected and are a mixture of rare antiques, one-of-a-kind works by artists, and mass-produced industrial objects. Contemporary works tend to be featured. Perusing the book is a little like going to a surrealist tea party. Color photos are very nice. A fun book. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc

This is a fun picture book and an informative volume--as an art lover and a seller of YiXing teapots, I found all of the images inspirational. It's wonderful to see examples of people thinking "outside of the box!"

"'The Eccentric Teapot' helps us to see beyond the mundane, as [the] teapot is supplanted by objects of art which are, alternately, whimsical, elegant and exotic....Garth Clark...recounts in superb detail the history of tea, tea rituals and the unflappable tea pot..." Los Angeles Times Book Review
