Herman, Lloyd E.
American Porcelain: New Expressions in an Ancient Art.

Forest Grove Timber Press: 1981.

An important traveling exhibition of the work of 108 artist potters, with illustrations of their work, biographical information and artists' statements. There are short essays on the history of porcelain, and its history in the United States, but the heart of the book is the catalog of porcelains and their creators. The porcelains were chosen to illustrate a broad range of views and approaches, and this broad range is also shown in each potters' answer to the question, "why do you work in porcelain?". An entertaining and illuminating survey.

Softcover. 8.5"x11", 135 pages, color and b/w illustrations covers rubbed, a little wear.
