Ceramics in America

Mark Alberghina, Saint Sebastien
Today I read an article on how clay is entering the Art (capital A) market. It is an interesting reading, and gives a good insight on the state of American Ceramics.
It is true, and not only in the States, that there is growing attention to artists working with ceramics, probably driven by the need to satisfy the physical need of a piece of art. Clay is an incredible material that requires knowledge, artistry, a good idea and a spoonful of magic.
These new artists are succeding in infusing a simple bag of greyish dough with pure spirit.
It is very exciting !
Here some good stuff to look at:
