Contemporary Ceramics From Function to FantasyBook - 2003
In a culture that has embraced contemporary studio pottery wholeheartedly, surprisingly few books have explored the best ceramic works of the last century in a large, full-colour format. Great Pots: Contemporary Ceramics from Function to Fantasy does exactly this under the guidance of Ulysses Grant Dietz, the acclaimed curator of decorative arts at The Newark Museum. This book focuses on the museum's collection of 20th century vessels, which is legendary in curatorial and collecting circles for its age, diversity, quality and continuity. Two hundred colour images were taken specifically for this book by art photographer Richard Goodbody.
