"Edmund DeWall highlights the ironic and unsettling Postmodern ceramics of the 1980's and 90's" is correct, and by that I mean highlights. DeWall skims over this topic so quickly that I still am not sure of the point of this article. What he does is simply describe what Postmodernism is, without reference to how that is significant to ceramics, or if it's a good or bad thing. The article is way to short for a topic of this depth. Without photos, it is just over a page long. He jumps around briefly describing each work, makes one point and moves on to the next. He raises many points by fails to come to any conclusions.
