This stunning book brings the most important contemporary black ceramicists together for the first time, in order to provide readers with a deeper appreciation of the discipline, and a broader understanding of contemporary art more generally.

38 of today’s top African-American artists in clay are represented, along with a number of African artists that have influenced them. The book addresses the history of slavery in the US, and shows how these remarkable ceramicists are employing historical memory and clay to influence the 21st-century conversation and give Black artists the recognition they so deserve. Each of 38 contemporary ceramic artists is featured in an introduction, an interview, and in beautiful photographs that highlight some of their work. More than 300 stunning photographs demonstrate a diversity of studio practices and ways of using the material. This is an important text that honours the contributions, presence, and experiences of African Americans in ceramic history in America, and will appeal to makers and admirers of the craft equally.
