Clay is back: the age-old craft of ceramics is being embraced by a new generation of urban makers and collectors-and by interior designers. Here, Katie Treggiden explores the con-temporary revival of pottery, focusing on six inspiring cities and their makers. Twenty-five young and passionate ceramicists in New York, London, Tokyo, Copenhagen, Sydney, and Sao Paulo introduce us to their work, their studios, and their inspiration. Urban Potters: Makers in the City will appeal to a broad audience-not only to those who practice pottery themselves, but also to anyone interested in the handmade. The book also includes a practical source list of places to buy handmade ceramics in the six cities featured.
