The surreal yet playful ceramic sculptures of Patti Warashina, the pan-cultural folk art motifs of Karen Koblitz, and the stunning red earthenware reliefs of Paul Day—whole worlds in themselves—are among the works of 38 master potters in this beautifully illustrated survey. Matthias Ostermann, himself an elected member of the International Academy of Ceramics in Geneva who specialized in low-fire tin glaze techniques, curated this collection shortly before his death in 2009. The artists are each given a brief profile followed by some dozen examples of their finest work and their own comments on their inspirations.

"The late Matthias Ostermann, well known for his own work in earthenware, selected 38 international artists working in the low-fire range for inclusion in this book.... Collectively, the selected artists create vessels, functional work, and various types of sculpture. The surfaces range from unglazed to monochromatic glazing and to highly decorated patterns [and] narrative, illusionistic, and even photorealistic imagery. The book showcases the versatility of working in the earthenware range—with some artists interested in the range of colors and surfaces available, while others are interested in the connections to specific historical or regional styles and glazes, and many are interested in the material's associations with the pottery that has been made and used by everyday people for centuries."—Ceramics Monthly
