If your idea of what you can do with pottery is make a fetching and/or useful jar or produce some nice kitchen or bathroom tiles, think again. The display at the Eighth Biennale of Israeli Ceramics, which opened on August 1 at the Eretz Israel Museum in Ramat Aviv, amply demonstrates that ceramics- related artistic thinking has come a long way since the days when King Herod ruled the roost here, in not too kindly a manner.

If the biennale is the definitive show of where Israeli pottery art is at right now, you could say that the sector is in rude, bustling health. In many cases, it is almost as though the material were just an excuse for giving tangible form t o some suitably off-thewall ideas.
