Even a person who has never touched a piece of clay will find himself itching to try his hand at the wheel after reading this book. the book contains over 450 illustrations including many colour plates of well-known potters' works. A series of clear step-by-step photographs show every stage of making pottery -from preparing the clay and throwing it on the wheel to glazing the complete piece. More advanced students of pottery will be fascinated by the photographs which provide a unique record of the techniques used by the dying breed of potters who 'mass produce' pottery on the wheel with a skill and speed that leaves most modern artist-potters gasping.
