Alun Graves

Thames & Hudson/V&A

This magnificent catalogue of the V&A’s collection of 20th century and contemporary British ceramics by makers such as Rachel Kneebone, Grayson Perry and Edmund de Waal places them in a broader international group of artists experimenting with clay and considers the medium in dialogue with other art forms and with culture at large. It traces modern methods back to East Asia, Africa, the ancient Mediterranean and the Middle East, showing how these influences continue to inspire contemporary makers and demonstrating how recent experimentation has led to the reinvention of ceramics as a radical and contemporary art practice.
