This book offers something for everybody interested in pottery! Beginning potters will find a complete course in the pages of this book. Experienced potters will find new ideas for designing and decorating virtually every type of ware. Heavily illustrated with more than 600 how-to photos, The Complete Potter takes readers through every phase of the potter’s craft, from clay to kiln. Separate sections explain:
  • Clays: their different types and uses
  • Types of ware: terracotta, stoneware, porcelain, raku, and others
  • Design: how to draw and plan a piece before making it
  • The basic processes: clay preparation, tools, throwing and turning on a potter’s wheel, using molds, tile-making, and more
  • Decoration: creating surface textures, using slips, glazes, pigments, and more
  • Materials and pigments for decorating: what they’re made of and how to use them
  • Kilns and firings: kiln types, temperature controls, and more
  • Tools and equipment: from hand tools to semi-industrial equipment
  • Health and safety: a complete guide
This handsome and instructive volume also shows examples of work by some of the world’s leading ceramicists, with information on how they achieve their fine results. Here is a book that lives up to its title: it is truly The Complete Potter.
