Whether you design pottery for everyday use or create fine art objects, you will find inspiration and practical instruction in this handsome volume, as step-by-step tutorials take readers through each stage of the ceramic-making process.
The book boasts a clearly illustrated summary of essential potter’s tools and provides instruction on developing design concepts and making prototypes and technical drawings.

The book concludes by teaching final design, creation of finished pieces, and development of a portfolio for presentation to buyers.
Featuring practical exercises for each stage in pottery design and construction, this beautifully illustrated book is mainly intended for students planning to develop a career as professional ceramic designers — but ambitious amateur do-it-yourselfers will also find plenty of inspiration and solid instruction.
