Wayne Higby (born in 1943) is an international protagonist amongst contemporary ceramic artists. The scope of his work ranges from objects and sculptures to the large-scale architecture installations EarthCloud and SkyWell Falls.His abstract interpretations of American landscapes using the Raku technique have an almost eerie presence, plasticity and technical perfection. Their theme is philosophical: ?My work is a meditation on the relationship between spirit and matter. It is not about landscape.? (W. Higby) This first monograph dedicated to the complete works of the pioneering ceramicist accompanies the travelling exhibition ?Infinite Place: The Ceramic Art of Wayne Higby?, opening in April 2013 at the Arizona State University Art Museum, Tempe/Arizona. 180 images present a complete survey of works, while expert essays illuminate the oeuvre from various perspectives.Wayne Higby lives and works in Alfred, New York, and holds a professorship and The Robert Turner Chair of Ceramic Art at Alfred University. He is Honorary Professor of Art at Shanghai University and a Honorary Citizen of the ?Porcelain City? of Jingdezhen, China, as well as vice president of the International Academy of Ceramics in Geneva. With contributions by Carla Coch | Helen W. Drutt English | Tanya Harrod | Peter Held | Wayne Higby | Mary Drach McInnes | Henry Sayre | Ezra Shales
