Synopsis: Both amateur and professional potters constantly seek time-saving tips, trade secrets, and new technical knowledge--which makes this handsomely illustrated book exactly what they're looking for! Author Jacqui Atkin describes the full range of available clays and their individual qualities, as well as necessary tools and equipment. She presents easy-to-follow directions for fashioning pottery, and augments her instruction with captioned, step-by-step photos and illustrations. Topics explained in detail cover--

  • Developing design concepts, from sketch pad to finished piece
  • Slabbing, pinching, coiling, throwing, turning, and mold-making, using various clays
  • Creating surface decoration, with attention to colors, textures, and glazing

    Helpful sidebar features include troubleshooting tips with solutions to problems that often arise in the process of making pottery. Here is a book that belongs on the reference shelf of every serious potter. Approximately 450 color illustrations.
  • From the Inside Flap: (back cover)
    The indispensable compendium of essential knowledge and troubleshooting tips

    Just like having an expert on call 24 hours


    a day with answers to any ceramic
    questions or dilemmas you might have


  • Step-by-step photographs, diagrams, and clear instructions will guide you through each stage of your work, or you can look up details for help with a particular problem.
  • Discover how to improvise tools using kitchen implements, find a shortcut to rolling faultless coils, build the perfect spout, and learn a foolproof method for removing a vessel from the wheel without distorting it.
  • Every section features "try it" and "fix it" panels, suggesting ways to practice or develop skills and avoid common errors.

    Jacqui Atkin is a professional studio ceramicist who teaches pottery and occupational therapy in various colleges in the U.K. She now runs private courses in low-fire techniques, including smoke-firing and Raku, from her home in rural Shropshire. Jacqui has contributed to many books as a project maker and gallery artist and is the author of Handbuilt Pottery Techniques Revealed, Pottery Basics, and The Tile Artist's Motif Bible.
