Simply Pottery is a clearly set out and beautifully illustrated introduction to this creative and fascinating craft. Whether you are developing your skills for purely practical purposes, or to broaden your artistic abilities, this book offers a choice of both functional and sculptural projects. The diverse range of techniques, from slabbing and coiling to simple hand throwing, and the variety of shapes and decorative finishes offer endless creative possibilities for the potter, whatever the level of expertise. Included in this volume is a wealth of clearly illustrated references to all the necessary tools, materials, and techniques.
Further instructions follow the various stages of glazing and firing, essential for producing a professional looking finish. The projects then demonstrate how to use your skills to make beautiful and creative forms, from fully serviceable jugs and plates, to festive candle holders and delicate mobiles.
Simply Pottery is an essential manual for all potters, covering the basic techniques of this ancient craft which are demonstrated in over 25 projects.
