Ceramics and other mediums of tactile sculpture are having a real revival in popularity at the moment, so here is our list of the ten most exciting ceramicists that you should be following on Instagram right now.

Kevin’s ceramics are often two-dimensional and wall-mounted, making them both painting and sculpture in one. The way in which he creates the lines is by inscribing them into the raw clay pre-firing.

Frederik is a painter as well as one of the best ceramicists, but we couldn’t leave him off the list when he does such incredible work as this gold head below.
Brian Rochefort (@EnergyGloop)
The textures and colours in Brian’s work make them look so tasty that we just want to eat them.
Dan T Mccarthy (@DanTMccarthy)
It is impossible to not love Dan’s quirky ‘Facepots’,
Tom Volkaert (@C0ldChain)
Tom’s work is messy and disordered, and immensely beautiful.
