Like blacksmithing or hobby farming, pottery-making appeals to individuals who like to be creative, work with their hands, and don?t mind getting a little dirty. However, it is a hobby that is largely underserved by the publishing industry, but difficult for someone to learn without a comprehensive guide because the tools and techniques are quite complicated. The Potter?s Studio Handbook guides readers through the process of setting up their own studio and teaching them how to master the techniques at home. Once techniques are mastered, The Potter?s Studio Handbook will remain an invaluable resource to the clay artist when looking to create beautiful, yet functional projects, at home with nearly 25 projects that build upon previously learned skills.

  • Teaches the three most popular techniques: wheel throwing, hand building, and slipcasting
  • Teaches readers how to make many functional and beautiful projects at home
  • Step-by-step photos guarantee success

Review:

Müller, Kristin. The Potter’s Studio Handbook: A Start-to-Finish Guide to Hand-Built & Wheel-Thrown Ceramics. Quarry: Quayside. 2007. c.192p. illus. bibliog. index. ISBN 978-1-59253-373-2. pap. $24.99. ART INSTRUCTION

Müller, a ceramic artist since 1987 and the education director for Brookfield Craft Center in Brookfield, CT, offers a splendid book on a timeless art. She guides beginners through advanced students in equipping a ceramic studio, handling the design, preparing the clay, constructing slab projects, throwing on a wheel, glazing, and firing. The 16 clay projects featured here include teapots, vases, and dinner plates. Readers can draw inspiration from the creative painting and underglazing examples, as well as the unusual firing techniques for color and texture. Highly recommended, though professional potters will want advanced works like Irene Poulton’s Fired Up with Raku: Over 300 Recipes. -Library Journal, March 2008
