Tam Irving, ceramic artist, has lived in British Columbia for the past 50 years and during this time he has been at the heart of the changing social, political and cultural relationships that have informed the development of studio ceramics in this province. This beautifully illustrated book examines Tam’s craft as a unique cultural activity: one that combines both art and science to express the subtle content and sensuous tactility of vessel and sculpture. The core of the publication is about recording excellence and providing a stimulating legacy document for future scholars, artists and researchers. This book will recognize the contributions that Irving has made to the development of the ceramic medium within the province and to the larger Canadian and international ceramic community.
