Studio Ceramics in Canada
Gail Crawford (Author)
Studio Ceramics in Canada is both a comprehensive history and a beautiful, full-colour book. But it is also much more. It is an in-depth look at the growth of ceramics and pottery-making as art forms, from their humble beginnings after World War I to the dynamism and diversity of today. Written by cultural historian Gail Crawford, a pioneer recorder of the history of fine craft, Studio Ceramics in Canada is the result of a decade of research.
Conducting extensive work in the field of studio ceramics, Crawford traveled from coast to coast, undertaking countless interviews and combing public and private collections to detail the unique ceramics histories of every province and region.
Published by Goose Lane Editions in cooperation with the Gardiner Museum, Studio Ceramics in Canada contains 170 sumptuous full-colour images of art works and more than 200 archival photographs of influential artists, studios, and exhibitions. But it’s Crawford’s great attention to detail and love for the art form that separates this book from the rest.
Destined to become the definitive history of Canadian ceramics and pottery, Studio Ceramics in Canada is the first book of its kind. It is both textural and visual, wholly delving into each region to introduce the artists, craftspeople, instructors, retailers, curators, teaching institutions and collectors who share a passion for objects transformed by fire
