BOOK REVIEW: "500 Plates & Chargers"

July 8, 2009
Juror Linda Arbuckle chose stunning traditional and conceptual pieces for inclusion in 500 Plates & Chargers.



Juror Linda Arbuckle, a world-renowned ceramicist, chose stunning traditional and conceptual pieces for inclusion in 500 Plates & Chargers. This book is beautiful enough to display on a coffee table and, although interesting for anyone, is a wonderful reference for the professional potter. With work from passionate artists around the world, this book has a good variety of the types of ceramic work that can be achieved.

Plates and chargers are traditionally utilitarian, but some artists have chosen to push their pieces to be altered, abstract and completely experimental making them beautiful displays of ceramic art. Linda Arbuckle chose an excellent assortment of nearly all types of firing and glazing used in the ceramic world. In the more traditional works, there are a great array of natural colors and beautiful painterly effects. Many of these works are museum-worthy pieces of art.

Whether you are searching for inspiration for your next work of art or just wanting to pass some time, 500 Plates & Chargers will give you the stimulation you crave.
