Humans have been fashioning art and tools from the earth for at least 25,000 years. Despite this relationship's age, continuing technological developments mean we are still coming up with new ways of shaping clay, stone, and soil. Elemental/Earth is a deep-dive into the latest earth-based making, from composite stonework to 3D-printed ceramics. Profiles of artists renowned for their work with earthen materials explore the frontier where inspiration, skill, and technology meet. Whether working with new technologies or bare hands and clay, these artisans push the boundaries of stone and soil, creating truly unique, inspiring new forms, never losing sight of the ancient relationship our species shares with the materials. The first in a new series of books exploring elemental materials, Elemental/Earth, presents a bold picture of handmade earthenware's present and future.
