A practical and accessible guide to three key ceramic techniques - handbuilding, making and using moulds, and glazing and firing. Features 13 projects created by leading ceramic artists, including lidded boxes, elegant raku vessels and figurative work. Includes over 400 specially commissioned step-by-step colour photographs. Pottery speaks eloquently of our past and present - whether an Egyptian tomb figure, a Ming vase, a Meissen figurine, or a Lucie Rie bowl, there is always a story to tell. This superb book brings a sound practical knowledge of the main ceramic methods to both beginners and practising makers wanting to enrich and extend their approach. Following an introduction on choosing clay and preparing it in the workshop, the first section details the equipment needed in order to follow the techniques described in the book. Sections follow on Handbuilding, Making and Using Moulds, and Glazing and Firing, featuring a rich array of step-by-step instruction brought to life with examples of contemporary work.
