Ornamental, architectural and large-scale ceramic works have always appeared on buildings and in the landscape since the beginnings of ceramics in civilization. This book looks at the vast array of ceramics being produced today around the world in this context. The book divides work up into themes such as Symbolism, Pattern and Geometry, Architecture, Nature and the Human Figure, and is focused on the aesthetics and relevance of work in relation to its location.

Beautifully designed and illustrated, the works of more than 100 ceramicists are featured, showing the finished work in situ, as well as discussing the issues surrounding the construction of these ambitious and monumental projects. Examples of these works are the installation of giant tiles and stone seating in Victoria Square (Holm firth) by Jim Robison or the Darling Harbor Mural in Sydney, Australia, and other contemporary artists featured including Nino Caruso, Zhe Ie Geng, Nina Hole, Imre Schrammel, Carmen Dionyse and Gwen Heeney. This book is a fantastic review of the applications of ceramics today both on buildings and in the natural environment by many of the most prominent ceramicists in the field.
