About this title

Synopsis:

Written by a well-known ceramist, this best-selling, comprehensive introduction to ceramics adeptly combines the artist's perspective and spirit of creative inspiration with step-by-step, fully illustrated instruction in the full range of hand, wheel, and plasterwork techniques. Ideal for self-study, it features exceptionally clear explanations; an abundance of black-and-white and full-color illustrations of process sequences, model examples, and ceramic projects; and a convenient-to-use layout--with one topic per page or per two-page spread. Fabrication methods. Design, decoration, and glazing. Clays. Glazes. Firing the ware. The use of computers in ceramics. The marketing of ceramics. Features photos of a great variety of clayworks--from pots to ceramic installations, on site and in galleries; and a portfolio of international artists, with personal statements about their work. For any one interested in the procedures and techniques of working in clay.

From the Publisher:

The second edition of this popular and comprehensive book is again based in the spirit of creative inspiration, combining a clear step-by-step approach to acquiring skills with an appreciation of the unique potential of working in clay. The student can be left alone with this text to learn on an as needed basis. This frees the instructor so that they can function individually with students solving problems and giving advice. Author Susan Peterson is a well-known ceramist whose writing style provides clear descriptions of the fundamental ceramic procedures -- both in the text and through the use of copious illustrations. The selection of ceramic projects and the author's ability to convey the artist's perspective is intended to appeal to both instructors and students.
