The cross-cultural collaboration of Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada was a seminal event in the history of modern studio ceramics. Working together at St Ives, they and their disciples were a driving influence behind the worldwide resurgence of the craft aesthetic. George and Cornelia Wingfield Digby were early and far-sighted patrons of this circle, and assembled a famous collection of their pottery. Presenting the finest pieces from the collection, this book documents a momentous collaboration through the discriminating eyes and the historically important reminiscences of the Wingfield Digbys.

DANIEL JOHNSTON, raised on a farm in Randolph County, returned from Thailand with a new way to make monumental pots. Back home in North Carolina, he built a log shop and a whale of a kiln for wood-firing. Then he set out to create beautiful pots, grand in scale, graceful in form, and burned bright in a blend of ash and salt. With mastery achieved and apprentices to teach, Daniel Johnston turned his brain to massive installations. First, he made a hundred large jars and lined them along the rough road that runs past his shop and kiln. Next, he arranged curving clusters of big pots inside pine frames, slatted like corn cribs, to separate them from the slick interiors of four fine galleries in succession. Then, in concluding the second phase of his professional career, Daniel Johnston built an open-air installation on the grounds around the North Carolina Museum of Art, where 178 handmade, wood-fired columns march across a slope in a straight line, 350 feet in length, that dips and lifts with the heave while the tops of the pots maintain a level horizon. In 2000, when he was still Mark Hewitt's apprentice, Daniel Johnston met Henry Glassie, who has done fieldwork on ceramic traditions in the United States, Brazil, Italy, Turkey, Bangladesh, China, and Japan. Over the years, during a steady stream of intimate interviews, Glassie gathered the understanding that enabled him to compose this portrait of Daniel Johnston, a young artist who makes great pots in the eastern Piedmont of North Carolina.

The Benezit Dictionary of British Graphic Artists and Illustrators consists of over 3,000 entries on a range of British artists, from medieval manuscript illuminators to contemporary cartoonists. Its core is comprised of the entries focusing on British graphic artists and illustrators from the 2006 Benezit Dictionary of Artists with an additional 90 revised and 60 new articles. The collection highlights the rich history of British printmaking-both fine art prints and mass print media-and related activities in the production and illustration of printed books and manuscripts. Because of Benezit's focus on European artists of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries, this collection provides comprehensive coverage of British graphic art and illustration during their most significant periods of development. Entries provide straightforward, concise narratives of the artists' lives and careers, and many entries include bibliographies, auction sale records, exhibition histories, and museum collection holdings. This collection also includes over 200 images of artists' signatures. The Benezit Dictionary of British Graphic Artists and Illustrators serves as a compact, affordable alternative to the fourteen-volume Benezit for specialists and collectors in the fields of British art and/or printmaking.

"Throwing clay on a potter's wheel and the seemingly effortless and wonderful way that clay will swell and climb in the hands of a skilled potter is merely the beginning to this most 'natural' and ancient of crafts."--from Throwing Pots Throwing is a skill that many potters seek to master. It requires patience, time, and lots of practice. In Throwing Pots, Phil Rogers takes the reader through the basic principles of throwing. With the help of step-by-step illustrations, he demonstrates how to make a wide range of pots, from the simple bowl to the more complex forms of teapots and jugs, including lids and spouts. Rogers also discusses the aesthetics of pottery, encouraging readers to assess design and develop a personal style as well as recommending places to see examples of fine quality handthrown pottery.

The work of the artists belonging to the Camden Town School and Euston Road Group is well recorded but until now, no work of substance on the many hundreds of teachers and students who flocked to Camberwell during the post-war years has been published. With the publication of Camberwell School of Arts & Crafts Geoff Hassell has produced a valuable record of a unique period in British art. Victor Pasmore, William Coldstream and John Minton were among the charismatic teachers who attracted so many talented students, including mature ex-servicemen, to study at Camberwell. Many of the painters to emerge from this fertile period have since become household names, such as Terry Frost, Anthony Eyton and Euan Uglow. Many have yet to be discovered and their work, painterly and decorative, characteristic and wholly redolent of the time and place, is a credit to the scope and range of the influences exerted by the School. This book provides an essential and indispensable point of reference for all collectors of 20th century British art. As well as a brief history of the School and a dictionary section, containing biographical details of over 300 pupils and teachers of the period, 'Memories of Camberwell', a selection of students' reminiscences, emphasises their enthusiasm and inspiration.
