Over the last decade, the innovation and determination of ceramicists to push the boundaries of clay as well as people’s perceptions of the material has been both surprising and exciting. Wall Pieces offers inspiration for a material that’s extremely versatile, natural and beautiful. You’ll get an insight into how makers from all over the world are working with clay and the wall space in an exciting and dynamic manner. This book also provides some technical information and guidelines to help get you started in designing, creating and hanging your own wall piece.

The nails are hidden due to the height and size of the porcelain pieces, giving the work a light, airy feel.
