15 Janovicek, Nancy; Carr, Diane Back to the Land: Ceramics from Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands 1970-1985
Art Gallery of Greater Victora, 2012, 0888853696 / 9780888853691 Hard Cover Fine Pictorial Boards 
Brand new book in excellent condition in every respect. 94 pages with many full-page color prints. Book concentrates on the"back to the land" movement on ceramic art. This movement emerged out of the counterculture dialogue of the 1970s and was marked by a commitment to the organic and the home-made. The Vancouver Islands were an important centre for this movement as evidenced in the explosion of ceramic activity in this region. The thirty-one ceramic artists presented here were among the principal teachers at the time and many worked from influence and training in European modernism, the Bauhaus, the Leach/Hamada tradition, and abstract expressionism. 130737
