Peter Voulkos



Published in conjunction with the 1995 touring Japanese Museum retrospective of work by the pioneering late artist/ceramicist Peter Voulkos, this is the beautifully designed and printed first-edition Japanese catalogue from the Sezon Museum of Art, Tokyo (Jan 2 – Feb 20, 1995) and  The National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto. (Feb 28 – April 2, 1995), which comes housed in an elegant printed cardboard slipcase. A very rare volume, and in our opinion the most stunning of books on the work of Peter Voulkos.

Profusely illustrated with wonderful colour photo documentation of his many works, accompanied by an essay by Rose Slivka.

In 1954, Voulkos founded the Ceramic Center at Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles, which gave birth to the West Coast Abstract Expressionist ceramics movement. He later became a highly influential educator at UC Berkeley while continuing a vital career that included work in bronze sculpture and wood-fired stoneware.

* Condition: Very Good-Fine (a clean, tight copy protected in it’s original cardboard slipcase with only light tanning to backside) – All care is taken to provide accurate condition details of used books, photos available on request.
