Minimalist yet colorful, the modern ceramic art of Peter Pincus, an artist based in New York City, will forever change people's perception of the art form. Although contemporary interpretations of such vessels can differ greatly from traditional designs, these creations are much more different by way of coloring and patterns. The artist himself refers to them as "three-dimensional paintings out of pots."

Bringing the bright hues to life in a variety of ways, the modern ceramic art takes on a number of shapes and sizes. What really stands out is how structured the modern ceramic art is even though there is a subtle fluidity to the designs as well. Pincus writes that "they become canvases that visually illustrate the defining spirit of the times, despite their being utilitarian and made of clay, not canvas."
