One of the oldest human crafts, pottery is experiencing a renaissance, with a renewed desire for unique pieces and a respect for the imperfections associated with the marks of the maker. From the functional to decorative and sculptural works pushing the boundaries of the craft, Clay: Contemporary Ceramic Artisans offers a glimpse into the lives and practices of over 50 studio potters from around the world.

It is a celebration of the new pottery artisans and a behind-the-scenes look at their inspirations and working methods.
