- First monograph on the late Doris Bank- Perfectly designed ceramics with a minimalist aesthetic- A homage to a remarkable ceramicistThe works in porcelain and colorful shades of stoneware by Doris Banks might be modest and reduced in form, color, and decoration yet they still possess a remarkable impact and presence. All the objects are one-offs - modeled, formed, pressed, folded, glazed, and decorated by hand. As a result, the natural character of the material remains vivid. With a minimalist aesthetic beholden to Asia, the ceramic artist's works are characterized by a virtuoso play of form and surface that allows a tactile experience of textures on the exterior surface. This monograph is an in-depth appraisal not only of these works but also of an artist who despite her early death achieved remarkable things in studio ceramics. Text in English and German. Published to accompany an exhibition at the Bayerischer Kunstgewerbeverein, Munich, in May 2021.
