That Continuous Thing – a quote from the American artist Peter Voulkos – traces the changing shape of the ceramics studio over the last century. Collecting eight key texts on ceramic practice over the last 100 years, this book is an essential introductory reader on an area of growing interest. The book includes texts from leading scholars such as Bernard Leach, Herbert Read, Edmund de Waal, Tanya Harrod, Glenn Adamson, and Alison Britton, with contributions from artists Aaron Angell and Jesse Wine. With an introduction by editors Sam Thorne and Sara Matson, the book takes a fresh look at the trajectory of the ceramics studio.
