Sylvia Hyman’s ceramic sculpture in the style of trompe l’oeil (meaning to deceive the eye) is amongst the most convincing in the world of ceramic art and has been widely written about. This most recent Mansfield Press publication brings some of these essays along with numerous examples of her art. Over a prolific lifetime of making art, Sylvia Hyman has exhibited widely and her work is to be found in prestigious public and private collections throughout the USA and internationally.
Examples of Hyman’s work will both delight and intrigue readers who perhaps will not believe it is completely made of clay, truly fine examples of trompe l’oeil.
This publication gives insight into not only the techniques behind Hyman’s masterful works but also her concepts, intellectual and aesthetic approaches to her art.
The book also includes a bonus DVD featuring a 23 minute documentary “Eternal Wonder” and 431 images of Hyman’s work.
This book is a valuable resource for all artists, academics and students.
