LARGE-SCALE CERAMICS (Paperback) BY JIM ROBISON

Large-scale ceramics demand a number of considerations that dont necessarily concern most ceramicists. Questions of size of kiln needed, making over an extended period of time, designing for a specific site, assembling, weatherproofing and installation are all things that must be thought about. In this book, Jim Robison discusses all of these points as well as giving pointers as to getting and handling commissions. To work large is to accept a challenge. Pieces which reach out to meet the viewer - on his own terms of scale - create an interaction or dialogue - much more difficult to achieve in small works. To have to walk around a piece makes it difficult to ignore. All the traditional ceramic making methods are applicable to work done on a larger scale - it only requires an ability to think BIG and a bit of ingenuity. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
