Table Art in Stoneware and Porcelain
- First monograph on the late Doris Bank
- Perfectly designed ceramics with a minimalist aesthetic
- A homage to a remarkable ceramicist
The works in porcelain and colorful shades of stoneware by Doris Banks might be modest and reduced in form, color, and decoration yet they still possess a remarkable impact and presence. All the objects are one-offs – modeled, formed, pressed, folded, glazed, and decorated by hand. As a result, the natural character of the material remains vivid. With a minimalist aesthetic beholden to Asia, the ceramic artist’s works are characterized by a virtuoso play of form and surface that allows a tactile experience of textures on the exterior surface. This monograph is an in-depth appraisal not only of these works but also of an artist who despite her early death achieved remarkable things in studio ceramics.
