Phil Rogers, potter

01 Jul 2007

Phil Rogers - potter is a new book published in the United States by The Pucker Gallery of Boston and now available in the UK directly from Phil Rogers. 

Phil Rogers has been a potter for almost thirty years. His work is represented in the permanent collections of more than 40 museums worldwide including the Victoria and Albert Museum, the National Museum of Wales, Boston Museum of Fine Art, The Mint Museum of Craft and Design, Detroit Institute of Art and the Museum of Ceramics, Mashiko in Japan.

Contained in this book of almost 100 pages there are 80 full colour plates and an appreciation of Phil's work by Dr. Andrew Maske previously keeper of ceramics at the Peabody Essex Museum in New Hampshire whose doctorate in Japanese Art History was from Oxford University. This gives a good outline of both Phil's background and history as well as exploring the philosophy and influences behind his work today.
There is also a question and answer interview with Phil Rogers within which he talks about starting out as a potter, his life as a working potter, his influences and future projects.

Phil says 'To have a book written about me rather than by me is a very special moment. I hope this book will compliment the pots that are owned by collectors everywhere and provide some of the background to the work I make and my reasons for exploring the avenues that I do.'

Editor: This book gives an insight into what drives Phil Rogers and how his thinking affects his work. His excellent pots are well shown in some 80 first class images.
For anyone who enjoys Phil's work this book is an essential for the bookshelf, and it will provide useful insights for students wishing to understand more about his work.
