Synopsis: "The New Pottery Book" is a completely new and revised edition of the "Complete Potters Companion". Pottery is a dynamic art form, constantly evolving as it responds to newly developed techniques and the changing aspirations of potters and students. The title, as before, has been designed to help beginners and serious students alike. It guides the reader through the latest hand building and glazing techniques; new tested glaze recipes; kiln designs and firing programmes; as well as describing the traditional methods of working with clay. Each technique is supported by detailed instructions and specially taken step-by-step photographs. Galleries of work by respected artists from around the world form an inspirational feature of this volume. Pots by Paul Soldner, Claudi Casanovas, Hans Coper, Lucie Rie, Claude Casanovas, Hans Coper, Lucie Rie, Claude Champy, Shoji Hamada and Takeshi Yasuda, to name but a few, are included and show the reader the spectacular results that can be achieved with clay.

Review: Revised and updated, this classic potter's volume explains everything from preparation through firing, with stops along the way for detailed coverage of working on the wheel; coiled, slab, and pinch pots; mold making; slip casting; and glazing and decorating. The comprehensive text ranges from basic (wedging and kneading, beginning wheelwork) to advanced (spray glazing, raku firing). The no-frills design of the book packs almost too much information on a page, but the instructions are clear and thorough, the photos (more than 450, all in color) are straightforward and helpful, and the stunning examples of work by contemporary potters provide additional inspiration.
