Novices and experienced potters alike can find instruction and inspiration in the pages of this visually attractive and lavishly illustrated book. Providing both practical and creative information on tools and materials, production processes, glazing, and decorative techniques, it also includes detailed explanations of clays, accessories, and kilns. Readers can explore the essential methods for modeling (hand building and wheel turning), for decorating pieces (slips, glazes, colored engobes), and for properly firing finished pieces at both low and high temperatures.
There’s a wealth of ceramics methods and information in these pages. Top ceramists provide step-by-step instructions for completing six sophisticated projects — from an elegantly simple and functional vessel to a large, oval sculpture formed by extrusion and wheel-throwing. Hundreds of beautiful color photos are scattered throughout.
