From the Inside Cover: The history of American ceramics from the celebration of the Centennial (1876) to the present day is rich, varied, and relatively undocumented. It is a period studded with men and women of genius, uncompromising ethical standards, and engaging eccentricity. The purpose of the exhibition at the Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse, New York, and this book based on it is to present the history of American ceramics, its aesthetic and its influence, and so provide a perspective. Comprised of over 400 pieces, the majority of which are illustrated in this book, the exhibition and book span one hundred years of creative endeavor. In the decade-by-decade presentation, a variety of styles, philosophies, and techniques of ceramic artists is shown in this first study focusing on the role of ceramics in the modern, decorative, and fine arts of the United States. The journey of self-discovery and purpose that is surveyed here is an extraordinary one. It takes the ceramic medium in the United States from an imitative, exploratory stance in the late nineteenth century to a vanguardist role in the 1950s and beyond. The achievement is twofold. On the one hand, the American ceramists had established a beachhead for a traditional craft medium in the fine arts, redefining the vessel aesthetic and presenting ceramic sculpture as an intimate and meaningful alternative to the cerebral quality of postwar metal sculpture. More broadly, however, it reflects the triumph of a nation that has been able to achieve a cultural voice and identity through the arts in the brief space of one hundred years
The eccentric teapot : four hundred years of invention by Garth Clark( Book )

10 editions published between 1989 and 1996 in English and held by 738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This ... book introduces us to some of the most sublime, outrageous and exotic teapots ever to grace a Mad Hatter's tea party. The designers of these idiosyncratic vessels have fully explored the ceremonial significance, spiritual associations, and formal complexities of teapots and tea-drinking, but they have given the results a distinctly eccentric spin. Both comfortingly familiar and utterly peculiar, this ... gallery of teapots includes portrait teapots of Oscar Wilde, Brooke Shields, and Queen Elizabeth; teapots representing animals, vegetables and the Three Mile island cooling towers; and teapots so far removed from the concerns of function that they resemble nothing so much as drawings of teapots. The form of this simple object has fueled the creative genius of art, craft, and industry toward ends as diverse as pure aesthetics, perfect utility, lighthearted whimsy and political satire."--Book jacket
