For any course in ceramics. No prior study is required. Written by a well-known ceramist, this best-selling, comprehensive introduction to ceramics adeptly combines the artist's perspective and spirit of creative inspiration with step-by-step, extensively illustrated instruction in the full range of ceramic procedures--i.e., hand, wheel, and plasterwork techniques. Ideal for class instruction or self-study, it features exceptionally clear explanations; an abundance of black-and-white and full-color illustrations of process sequences, model examples, and ceramic projects; and a convenient-to-use layout--with one topic per page or per two-page spread.About the Author:
