Hermannsburg Potters: Aranda Artists of Central Australia

This book reveals the true story behind the wonderful work of the Hermannsburg Potters, detailing the history behind this pottery community situated smack bang in the middle of the desert, in central Australia.

At Hermannsburg, the Aranda potters have established a modern, vibrant and highly original form of ceramic art that draws on many influences, while strongly reflecting the distinctive visual culture of the region. With tales of its establishment, this well-illustrated book gives the reader an engaging insight into this creative indigenous community.

Author Jennifer Isaacs, who has published widely on the indigenous people of central Australia, explores craft traditions and the important influence of Albert Namatjira and his followers on these ceramic artists. The book has been out for a number of years, but is still well worth checking out. It is beautifully produced and deals with an important group who have been a source of inspiration for many contemporary artists.
