Phil Rogers understands, as did Bernard Leach, the doyen of British fine art pottery, that the studio potter is an artist who seeks to create beauty through a utilitarian object. This book, with an in-depth interview with the artist, and full-color illustrations throughout, allows the reader to appreciate the historical context and profound beauty of contemporary fine art pottery.
