20th century ceramics by Edmund De Waal( Book )

15 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the turn of the twentieth century, ceramics--as in other media in both the decorative and fine arts--underwent revolutionary change. The potter emerged from the anonymity of the workshop and made more individualistic statements in clay than ever before. Ceramics have kept pace with, or even led, new movements in art, from art nouveau, art deco, the Bauhaus, and futurism, through abstract expressionism, pop and performance, to land art and installation art. Stylistic and technical influences are considered here in context, from orientalism and color theory to modernism, postmodernism, and the profuse diversity of approaches that characterizes the end of the century. The scope is wide, taking in developments in Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, the United States, and Japan. The work of exceptional individuals is appraised, including Taxile Doat, Clarice Cliff, Susie Cooper, Bernard Leach, Isamu Noguchi, Hans Coper, Lucie Rie, Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso, Peter Voulkos, and Adrian Saxe. The relation of ceramics to other disciplines is given close attention: sculptors, such as Antony Gormley and Tony Cragg, and even architects, including Frank Gehry, have made ceramics central to their practice. This comprehensive survey provides invaluable background and commentary on leading practitioners, critics, theorists, and pioneers, illuminating the development of an art form that seized and inspired the imagination of artists and the public alike in the twentieth century

Facing the modern : the portrait in Vienna 1900 by Gemma Blackshaw( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and Italian and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the great flourishing of modern art in fin-de-siècle Vienna, artists of that city focused on images of individuals. Their portraits depict artists, patrons, families, friends, intellectual allies, and society celebrities from the upwardly mobile middle classes. Viewed as a whole, the images allow us to reconstruct the subjects' shifting identities as the Austro-Hungarian Empire underwent dramatic political changes, from the 1867 Ausgleich (Compromise) to the end of the First World War. This is viewed as a time when the avant-garde overthrew the academy, yet Facing the Modern tells a more complex story, through thoughtprovoking texts by leading art historians. Their writings examine paintings by innovative artists such as Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka and Egon Schiele alongside those of their predecessors, blurring the conventionally-held distinctions between 19th-century and early-20thcentury art.0Exhibition: The National Gallery, London, UK (09.10.13.-12.01.14.)

Bernard Leach was the preeminent artist potter of this century. Early in his career he spent 12 formative years in Japan. Returning to England in 1920, he set up a studio in St. Ives. Leach's influence on the growth of the studio pottery movement, both in Japan and in the West, has been profound. His making of ceramics and his teaching of some of the foremost artist-potters of the period gives him a central place in the international history of decorative arts

Vienna is demolished by war, the city an alien landscape of ruined castles, a fractured ruling class, and people picking up the pieces. Elisabeth de Waal's mesmerizing The Exiles Return is a stunningly vivid postwar story of Austria's fallen aristocrats, unrepentant Nazis, and a culture degraded by violence.

Japanese netsuke by Julia Hutt( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Japanese netsuke is a thing of wonder: a utilitarian accessory to traditional Japanese dress that has become an art form in itself, prized by collectors from East to West. The V & A's collection of netsuke is world-famous, and this stunning book draws on its many highlights to explore the origins of netsuke and to trace the sources of their designs in prints, paintings and woodblock-printed books. It records the evolution of materials and techniques and the patterns of craftsmanship, in a text that is both accessible and comprehensive, and is illustrated with some of the very finest examples of netsuke."--Publisher's website
New wave clay : ceramic design, art and architecture by Tom Morris( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout the twentieth century, ceramics was broadly divided into two sectors. Studio pottery, which was a reaction against the mass-made wares of the industrial revolution, and fine art by contemporary artists, who just happened to use clay in their practice but rejected many of its traditional codes of practice. The unprecedented surge in popularity of ceramics in the last five years has helped forge a new type of potter: the ceramic designer. Part-craftsman, part designer, they bridge ceramic craft, collectible design, and fine art. These ceramicists include product designers who use clay as a means of creative expression, and classically trained potters who create design-led pieces, in addition to interior decorators, illustrators, and graphic designers. Their collective output includes furniture, decorative objects, murals, and vessels: not art, not craft, but design. The ambition of the book is to show the diversity of this area of creative production and the way in which history, craft, technology, and design are all intersecting in the present day, creating a new type of designer--and a new type of ceramicist. The book is divided into four thematic chapters and accompanied by written contributions on the subject from designers, decorators, and collectors."--

That continuous thing : artists and the ceramics studio, 1920-today by GB) Tate Gallery (Saint Ives( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the rise of studio pottery in the 1910s to a number of new commissions by a young generation of UK-based artists, That Continuous Thing traces the changing shape of the ceramics studio over the last century, from the radical to the apparently traditional. Opening with exchange between Japan and the UK in 1910s and 1920s through the emergence of studio potters such as Bernard Leach, Shoji Hamada and Dora Billington, the book leads on to the Californian "clay revolution" of the 1950s and 1960s, with sculptures by the pioneering artist Voulkos. The book also includes works by contemporary artists made over the last three years at Angell's London-based Troy Town Art Pottery, which has been described as "a radical and psychedelic workshop for artists."
