Renowned ceramic artist Karen Karnes has created some of the most iconic pottery of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. The body of work she has produced in her more than sixty years in the studio is remarkable for its depth, personal voice, and consistent innovation. Many of her pieces defy category, invoking body and landscape, pottery and sculpture, male and female, hand and eye. Equally compelling are Karnes's experiences in some of the most significant cultural settings of her generation: from the worker-owned cooperative housing of her childhood, to Brooklyn College under modernist Serge Chermayeff, to North Carolina's avant-garde Black Mountain College, to the Gate Hill Cooperative in Stony Point, New York, which Karnes helped establish as an experiment in integrating art, life, family, and community. This book, designed to accompany an exhibit of Karnes's works organized by Peter Held, curator of ceramics for the Arizona State University Art Museum's Ceramic Research Center, offers a comprehensive look at the life and work of Karnes. Edited by highly regarded studio potter Mark Shapiro, it combines essays by leading critics and scholars with color reproductions of more than sixty of her works, providing new perspectives for understanding the achievements of this extraordinary artist.

Eine faszinierende Familiengeschichte, die über Kontinente hinweg, vom kolonialen Amerika über das Europa der zwanziger und dreißiger Jahre und in die USA von den 1950ern bis herauf in die Gegenwart reicht, das ist Benfeys Erinnerungsbuch. Sein Vater Otto Theodor stammte aus der Verlegerdynastie Ullstein, seine Mutter aus einer amerikanischen Maurer- und Tabakpflanzerfamilie; sein Großonkel, der Bauhaus-Künstler Josef Albers, unterrichtete am Black Mountain College Größen der Moderne wie Robert Rauschenberg. Benfey beherrscht die Kunst, Orte und Personen plastisch werden zu lassen. Der rote Faden, der sie verbindet, bleibt aber immer die Geschichte der Familie, die uns auf die Spuren der titelgebenden Materialien führt: Sand, Stein und Ton.

The Arizona State University Art Museum is renowned for its extensive and notable craft collection and features international acquisitions in wood, ceramic, and fiber. This book, edited by the museum's curators, uses the ASU collection to explore the idea of craft within a critical context, as both idea and action. Crafting a Continuum begins with the genesis of the craft collection and relates it to the historical development of craft in the United States and abroad, exploring both anthropological and cultural concepts of the field. Peter Held and Heather Sealy Lineberry present photographs of the museum's objects alongside essays by distinguished scholars to illuminate historical and contemporary trends. Sidebars and essays by writers in the craft field offer a broad overview of the future of contemporary craft.
