The Potter's Studio Handbook
A Start-to-finish Guide to Hand-built and Wheel-thrown CeramicsBook - 2007
Like blacksmithing or hobby farming, pottery-making appeals to individuals who like to be creative, work with their hands, and don?t mind getting a little dirty. However, it is a hobby that is largely underserved by the publishing industry, but difficult for someone to learn without a comprehensive guide because the tools and techniques are quite complicated. The Potter?s Studio Handbook guides readers through the process of setting up their own studio and teaching them how to master the techniques at home. Once techniques are mastered, The Potter?s Studio Handbook will remain an invaluable resource to the clay artist when looking to create beautiful, yet functional projects, at home with nearly 25 projects that build upon previously learned skills. Teaches the three most popular techniques: wheel throwing, hand building, and slipcasting Teaches readers how to make many functional and beautiful projects at home Step-by-step photos guarantee success
