I knew this book when interviewed Kjell, the content include some designers that i have known or interviewed,like cj and Christin Jonansson etc. as many traditional crafts, Ceramics have changed in many aspects in past years, various of activities ,from object-making to installations compose modern ceramics scene. designers and artists are pushing the boundaries of design form, both in technique and conception, to explore more possibility of ceramics.
