Trevor Baird: New Ceramics

Trevor Baird is at the forefront of the New Ceramics movement. That’s a movement I just made up, but it starts now and consists of ceramics like you’ve never seen them before.

Her vision tends to focus on the exuberance of youth, though it is tempered by a kind of remote detachment, articulated in high-contrast color and what often looks like digital grain.
