Eden Revisited is the first full-scale monograph presenting a survey of one of America's most ingenious ceramic artists, Kurt Weiser. Shaped from his influential childhood experiences during the baby boom years, the artist demonstrated an early disposition for the visual arts, encouraged by his parents and teachers. While attending the Kansas City Art Institute, he became a protege of Ken Ferguson, a highly acclaimed ceramist and educator who quickly recognized Weiser's abilites and determination.

With a solid foundation in the history of ceramics and studio techniques, Kurt Weiser became Resident Director of the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts, an internationally acclaimed residency program located in Helena, Montana. During his eleven year tenure, he attracted some of the best ceramicists of his generation and recruited artists from abroad. During this era, Wesier concentrated on producing functional ceramics inspired by his love of Asian pottery traditions, using a wide range of firing and building techniques.

In 1989, Weiser accepted a teaching position at Arizona State University, where his work took a dramatic turn. Paying homage to the rich European and Asian china painting traditions, he began to paint surreal, lushly painted porcelain vases, creating provocative and unnerving narrative vessels that were met with critical praise worldwide. He is a true postmodernist, informed by daydreams, study, travels, and exotic fantasies. Redefining his artistic career over three decades of creative excellence as a skilled potter, master draftsman, and accomplished china painter, Kurt Weiser, an American original, has created a singular body of work that provides insight into the mind.
