Artsy has posted its list of 20 Artists Shaping the Future of Ceramics. Generally we would thumb our noses at such a compilation as listicles like these often lack ingenuity and thought, however, we can see the author, Casey Lesser, has done their homework. Lesser writes the worlds of ceramic art and contemporary ceramic art have been traversing a crossroads as artists work to establish themselves as innovators in the field of visual arts.
