An excellent read for art biographies and art libraries in general, highly recommended.--The Midwest Book Review
Filled with high-quality images spanning 60 years of [Karnes's] work. After reading the book, you will understand why she is commonly referred to as the 'grandmother of American ceramics.'--AmericanStyle
Wonderful full-page colour photographs. . . . Will be welcomed by all who have admired and appreciated the utilitarian pieces and sculptural vessel forms Karen has produced during her distinguished career over 60 years as one of the USA's foremost potters.--The Log Book
A beautiful, fascinating look at [Karen Karnes].--The Chronicle
Fascinating. . . . Thoughtful, intimate, and clear descriptions of the individual phases and turning points in Karnes's life. . . . A pleasurable read and an excellent resource for learning about contemporary American ceramics. . . . Recommended.--Choice
Mark Shapiro has assembled a stellar cast of essayists to explore the intriguing life and work of potter Karen Karnes. They write with a grace, clarity, and reverence befitting this maker of sublime yet curiously humble clay masterpieces.--Mark Hewitt, potter and co-author of The Potter's Eye: Art and Tradition in North Carolina Pottery
|A great book about one of the important potters of our time. Seven artists, critics, historians, and friends, followed by Karen's own observations, document her life and work. Central, analytical, and factual, it is a fascinating story of creativity and dedication. Inspiring and long overdue, it is important reading for all artists.--Warren MacKenzie, potter
|There are too few books that treat pottery as seriously as other art forms; too few that pay sufficient tribute to the achievements of women artists; and too few that situate great art within a rich biographical context. This finely textured book does all three, providing in-depth analysis not only of Karnes's pots and sculpture, but also of the life of the fascinating person who made them.--Glenn Adamson, Deputy Head of Research and Head of Graduate Studies, Victoria and Albert Museum
