Artist Showcase Ceramics
All Showcase Media Categories
Ceramics is one of the most classic and diverse of the craft media. It encompasses both functional objects (dinnerware, vases, platters, etc.) and sculptural or architectural forms. Techniques include wheel throwing, coil or slab-building, and casting; the clay can be stoneware (natural clay), porcelain (white and translucent), earthenware (low-fired), and raku (a scorched or metallic finish). From graphic primary colors and patterns to the subtlest Japanese glazes, ceramics offers up a wide selection of options for the collector.
