JB BLUNK Cups, plates, bowls & sculptures: ceramics 1950–1999 — 3rd Edition
Presented like recently unearthed relics, JB Blunk's ceramics carry with them an aura of autochthony. Rightly known for his large-scale sculptural works, this pamphlet displays a quieter, more inconspicuous side to Blunk's ouevre. Bowls, candleholders, trays and vases showcase the full breadth of Blunk's natural glazes and organic, biomorphic forms. There are overt nods to his Japanese training as well as cheeky and playful allusions to genitalia. A short introduction to Blunk's career and photographs of his Inverness home round-off a gentle overview of one of the most well-loved and well-respected sculptors of the 20th century.
