"Phil Rogers’s work is not about imposed concepts or clever ideas, but is concerned with the lasting, continually reinvigorated value of shapes and surfaces that gauge the possibilities of one's materials—it is about creative interaction."—David Whiting, writer and critic
Phil Rogers understands, as did Bernard Leach, the doyen of British fine art pottery, that the studio potter is an artist who seeks to create beauty through a utilitarian object. This book, with an in-depth interview with the artist, and full-color illustrations throughout, allows the reader to appreciate the historical context and profound beauty of contemporary fine art pottery.
Andrew L. Maske has published numerous articles on ceramics. In 2006, he was selected as a Fulbright scholar to research contemporary art ceramics in China.
