520    'Liz Williams: Body language' celebrates the remarkable 
       figurative sculptures of Australian ceramicist Liz 
       Williams. In this first comprehensive survey of her 
       ceramics, Margot Osborne traces the evolution of Liz 
       Williams' impressive body of coil-built ceramic sculptures
       commencing in the late 1970s. Over this forty-year period 
       Williams' work was marked by an increasing refinement and 
       technical prowess in her stylisation of the figure and her
       encapsulation of the subject's inner life through pose, 
       facial expression and bodily adornment. 'Liz Williams: 
       Body language' features 70 full-page colour images of 
       Williams' ceramics and her home/studio by leading 
       photographer Grant Hancock. It also includes essays by 
       Catherine Speck, Damon Moon and Wendy Walker. When Liz 
       Williams died in March 2017 after a short illness, her 
       friends and colleagues decided to launch a fund-raising 
       campaign towards a publication in honour of her artistic 
       legacy and her contribution to Australian ceramics. This 
       book was made possible by the philanthropy of private 
       donors to that campaign and by the support of Arts South 
       Australia. Liz Williams' choice of the artisan medium of 
       clay and her distinctive sculptural approach have made her
       art difficult to contextualise in terms of contemporary 
       styles in both sculpture and ceramics. This, and her 
       decision to practise from a base in Adelaide, contributed 
       to her relatively low profile during her life. This first 
       retrospective survey makes it possible to fully appreciate
       Williams' achievement and her contribution to ceramics in 
       Australia.
