Meer Kunst Van Het Decoreren (The art of Ceramic Decoration: Artists Share their Secrets)

peaceimage

The Art of Ceramic Decoration: Artists Share their Secrets has been a very successful book. As of today, it is available as a digital book (English / Dutch). The countless possibilities that digital books offer are incorporated in this digital versionl: internal linking from the table of contents and the index as well as links from all chapters to internet sites that provide more information on the current chapter.

Find ceramists from the Netherlands and Belgium as well as selected ceramists from all over the world and get to know their work and working methods. Find information on ceramic techniques, videos, texts and links or on where materials can be bought or what glaze software exists.

Clare Conrad and Emily-Kriste Wilcox have a section in the second book, Peter Beard is in the first book – with a video, David Binns, Claude Champy, Claudi Casanovas, Regina Heinz, Kim Holm, Michael Kay, Martin McWilliam, Ruthanne Tudball, Ashraf Hanna, Monika Debus, along with Rachel Wood - not to mention Grayson Perry, Richard Slee, Roland Summer, Mary Rogers, Edmund de Waal, Julian Stair and many other ‘greats’ from Europe and around  the World. Full list here.

From my brief look there are loads of images – you click through to pinterest – and a paragraph or two about each maker and quite a few video clips by makers featured. Theres lots to see on the website and sections on Techniques and Materials, lists of artists (link above) with links to their own websites. You can of course purchase the books – The second edition, which includes Clare Conrad – just out (end September 2014) is not yet in English, but the earlier one is in English and Dutch. I haven’t seen the books and its a bit unclear as to who is in the books or if some artists are just on the website. (written by Mels Boom)

The website is definitely worth a browse tho…. inspirations.ceramic.nl/index.html
