This book is the first of its kind: a celebration of fifty contemporary artists from around the world who have chosen to create the human form in clay.  There is a detailed account of each artist’s work, including biographical details and precise descriptions of their working methods.  In addition, each artist has been asked to name a major source of inspiration—whether another artist or key work, in any medium and from any culture, explaining the reasons for their choice.  The resulting depictions—ranging from the Willendorf Venus to a Michelangelo Pietà—combine with stunning photos of the artists’ work to make this a book that will inform and inspire.
