It’s that time of year again. Ceramics Monthly has chosen the winners of its popular Undergraduate Showcase competition. This competition highlights impressive work by artists who are still in the very beginning stages of their explorations with clay. The artists chosen are featured in the September 2011 issue of Ceramics Monthly. Today, I thought I would give these artists a little CAD love and share their work with you. Let’s all give them a virtual round of applause!
Today, in an excerpt from our latest free download Contemporary Clay Sculpture: Modern Ceramic Sculpture as Narrative, Object, and Decor, we learn a little about Joseph and his work. Plus, he talks about the process behind his rough-hewn, handbuilt pottery, and more.
In today’s post I wanted to highlight an upcoming exhibition that
features pottery that narrowly escaped the devastating March earthquakes
in Japan. In addition to getting the word out about this exhibition, I wanted
to send an update about the potteries of Japan. In this excerpt from the
June/July/August issue of Ceramics Monthly, Naomi Tsukamoto explains how the potters of Mashiko are slowly rebuilding their lives.
