Master the major pottery techniques used the world over, from time-honored traditional methods to exciting new developments. Move at your own pace, trying coiling, combing, resist decoration, sgraffito, slabbing, and texturing clay. Then put the techniques into practice with a wealth of inspirational examples, ranging from bowls, vases, and cups to plaques, spheres, and sculpture. Refer back to any of the alphabetical entries whenever you like to create your own beautiful pieces. In addition, you'll find advice on materials and equipment, including kilns, glazes, molds, and more.
This is a good practical reference book for the studio potter. It has two parts: Techniques, arranged alphabetically, and Themes, consisting of descriptions of forms and surface treatment. The book is illustrated throughout with excellent color photographs that do a good job of explaining the subject material and show work in progress as well as finished pieces. Unlike those pottery technique books that take the user step-by-step through a few processes at great length, this is designed as a quick reference for the beginner or experienced potter who wants to get started in an unfamiliar area. The museum quality examples in the illustrations make it an attractive browsing book as well. Highly recommended for crafts collections.
