In 2008 and 2013 the GRASSI Museum of Applied Arts in Leipzig presented
two representative inventory publications under the title
Vessel / Sculpture. German and International Ceramics since 1946,
which attracted great interest from across the globe and were regarded as standard
reference works.
This third volume editor Olaf Thormann continues the series, against a backdrop of a renewed
and extensive increase of modern studio ceramics in the museum’s
As in the previous publications, the objects in the book enter into
aesthetic dialogues, thus facilitating interesting perspectives in the
development of artistic ceramics up to the present day. In doing so it
becomes clear how ceramic objects are developing from a servient-functional
gesture into ever consistent autonomous artworks yet without
necessarily losing the vessel theme.
Its multitude of current artists’
biographies and illustrations of makers’ marks make this a highly recommendable
reference work.
