Complete Ceramics marries modern appeal with an age-old craft. This book features a collection of techniques beginning with basics such as making pinch pots, coil building and slab construction to more advanced techniques such as throwing and mould-making.
All techniques are followed by several inspiring projects such as the square-slabbed dish and square porcelain wall boxes. Once familiarised with the basics, the reader can progress to more advanced projects, which include glazing and wheel projects. Each project is designed to appeal to both the beginner and the seasoned potter.
In addition to step-by-step instructions for all techniques, this must-have reference book also features a history of the subject and information about various clays and kilns. No matter your age or skill level, Complete Ceramics is guaranteed to be a classic in both style and content. (25,000 words)
