    What a wonderful visual resource to have! The 3D component to view certain pots is very useful and the artists in this book have a diverse range of working methods in their studio practice. I would recommend this book highly! Once again Kevin Hluch offers a dynamic look into contemporary work within the ceramic arts.

    This book is one of the first I used online to share with students in class (via projector) to view a wide range of different voices in contemporary pottery! Visually stunning!
  • Pioneering

    Ibooks and art work are a relatively new combination, and Kevin Hluch does a great job at bringing together a compendium of voices, images and ideas in American iPottery. There are some real perks to an iBook, like the three dimensional spinning option of specific pots. The content is lush, and full of great images. I would like to have seen more probing interviews and information of the featured artists. Still I am pleased to own this book.

    I am a 7th grader and am doing an art project on various ceramic artists. I was browsing the I tunes store for a great book as my resource. And I found one! This book is amazing it talks about many talented artists in the techniques that they use in their pieces. The visuals are amazing it gives a 360° view of the artworks! It has great captions with lots of information. After the project my art teacher asked what book I used, I showed her this book and she was absolutely stunned! She said that she would show it to her students for the next year, to use for the same project. This book is a life saver and I hope that you have the chance to read it and look at the hundreds of hundreds of pictures!
  • Very disappointing

    By 1aubergine1
    This book has pretty pictures of splendid ceramic pieces, but that’s easy to find in abundance online and in may books with much more content. For the rest, it’s a series of artists statements that are basically the ones you’ll find on their websites. The surfaces of the photos are marked with pretty random arrow designations that could have been informative and are in some cases (“engobe”, “underglaze”) but are often annoyingly silly (“touch”, “process" [??], “edge”), and I was really disappointed that there’s only the sketchiest description of process. It also has lots of contact information for each artist (also easily found online free) so that the effect is that I’m reading a somewhat annoying product catalogue. I rarely give negative reviews, and this isn’t terribly expensive, but I could have purchased some Mason stains instead. It’s a ripoff, sorry, and doesn’t reflect well on the wonderful artists featured. Will try to figure out how to return it.

    Eye candy galore! Great for anyone interested in contemporary pottery. The 3-dimensional images are neat. Not the best technically, but being able to spin the pot upside down is worth the minor flaws. A must purchase for all budding potters and collectors!
