Iskandar Jalil is celebrated as one of Southeast Asia’s most prominent ceramicists. Known for his high level of discipline, tenacity and dedication, this Colombo Plan scholar is a recipient of multiple accolades including the Cultural Medallion and the prestigious Order of the Rising Sun, Gold Rays with Rosette for his outstanding achievement in visual arts.

Published on the occasion of a retrospective exhibition at National Gallery Singapore, this catalogue illuminates Iskandar Jalil’s enduring relationship with clay, his journey to become a master in his craft and the pivotal role he plays in expanding the practice of ceramics.

A collector’s edition of the catalogue (hardcover and includes a slipcase), bearing the artist’s signature, has been produced to commemorate this landmark exhibition. Featuring exquisite hand-finished production techniques, no two covers in this numbered edition of 300 are alike. A softcover version of the catalogue is also available. Both versions include over 160 full-colour image plates, newly commissioned essays and an exclusive interview with the artist.
