Intro
With exciting illustrations and informative essays, this first monograph on Sonja Duò-Meyer presents the development of a career in contemporary ceramic art now spanning over forty years.

Thanks to a conscious reduction in form and colour, the ceramics by the Swiss artist Sonja Duò-Meyer (b. 1953) unfurl incredible expressive power. The flowing silhouettes appear almost meditative, fixed points emerge in the light asymmetry of the forms, and a sophisticated play on light and shade develops. Surfaces, material, corpora and technique are interwoven through a minimalistic design concept celebrating void and stillness.

Photographs of objects as well as exhibition views show vessels, objects and wall installations from 1992 to 2017. A particular highlight are works and ideas from the ceramic centre Tajimi, where, as artist in residence, she engaged intensively with Japanese techniques.
