The Art of Handbuilt Ceramics starts with an historical and cultural overview to world ceramics before giving the beginner tips on how to try their own pieces in clay. With step-by-step photographs, the novice learns handbuilding and glazing methods, and innovative new ways of monoprinting on clay. Advanced students are then shown how to explore the exciting possibilities of paperclay. All the information necessary to progress from beginner to artist can be found in this compelling work, which also gives an excellent insight to the contemporary ceramic scene.
