This newest entry in the popular "Masters" series presents 38 of the world's most notable potters and sculptors - and dozens of vibrant, functional, sculptural and figurative pieces of earthenware to explore. "Masters: Earthenware" reveals the tremendous imagination, innovation and technical facility that today's artists bring to the oldest ceramic medium. This stunning volume gives each featured artist a mini-retrospective of approximately eight pages that showcase 12-14 of his or her best works, illuminating comments from the creators accompany the images, and outlining their development and artistic philosophy.
