The Craft and Art of Clay: A Complete Potter's Handbook

by ,

Widely considered to be the most comprehensive introduction to ceramics available, this book contains numerous step-by-step illustrations of all ceramic techniques gathered from an impressive collection of international plotters. For the fifth edition a new section on shino glazes has been added, as has revised information on new computer programmes. The portfolio section is vastly updated with the inclusion of over 50 more key contemporary ceramists from around the world. There are 125 new images and a poster showing blends of glaze materials will accompany the book. Other invaluable features include safety icons to warn beginners of potential hazards, a concise history of ceramics and its traditions from prehistory to the present day. For the more experienced ceramist, there is a wealth of technical detail on glaze formulas and temperature conversions, making the book an ideal reference. To quote one pleased user: 'I am a studio potter and would not be without it'. Hide synopsis
