Ceramics and the Environment deals with the increasing movement to produce large-scale works of art for the environment - whether in a building, street, park or landscape. This book looks at the practcalities of these monumental artworks such as firing, installing and weatherproofing, along with other issues such as the aesthetics and suitability of the piece to its surroundings. The author looks at all these issues as well as themes in these artworks by looking at specific projects built by artists.
