Description
If good sex is earthy then good ceramics certainly areóboth are enduring themes throughout the history of civilization, argues Canadian ceramist Paul Mathieu, who finds it inexcusable that the subject of sexuality in pottery is overlooked in most modern galleries. In this abundantly illustrated survey he considers a wide variety of erotic art in modern ceramics, including phallic and vaginal themes and hetero- and homosexual depictions and symbolism. Here too are a number of frank objects from centuries past, including a 17th-century French "breast bowl," a series of brothel tokens with amusingly smutty rebus messages, and 1,000-year-old painted bowls of the Mimbres people of the American southwest.
