Ceramics and Print
Ceramics and Print by Paul Scott
Printing has become a common part of the ceramic artist’s practice and today there are more possibilities than ever before. From low-tech mono-prints to digital laser decal, it is now possible to employ a range of techniques to print on clay and vitreous surfaces. With the ongoing advancement of new technologies and more developed studio-based transfer processes artists continue to push the boundaries of the medium.
In this comprehensive update of his popular Ceramics Handbook title, Paul Scott explains the historical context for contemporary printed ceramics before explaining the principles of core techniques and their application in the studio. In examining monoprinting, intaglio, block printing, serigraphy and photographic processes he explains how digital and green technologies are impacting on traditional ways of working, as well as creating entirely new methods with digital decals and three-dimensional printing. New images throughout illustrate the beautiful and thought-provoking works of leading artists.
Ceramics and Print is a must-read guide for artists and makers interested in this ever-developing field.
